Vintage Romanian peasant dress from Transylvania / Padureni with Tree of Life size M - L

Vintage Romanian peasant dress from Transylvania / Padureni with Tree of Life size M - L
The dress for sale is a truly scarce masterpiece of the Romanian culture. It is hand embroidered with black and multicolored cotton thread on white traditional hand woven cotton cloth.



The symbol sewn on this shirt is the tree of life. The tree of life represents the destiny of man: deep rooted in the earth but with the branches in contact with the sky, with the divine. Another pattern spread on most Romanian folk dresses is the letter S, a hook that has the role of catching and hanging luck on the shirt.



Age: 50 - 70 years old.



Condition: good with minor traces of the wear. The black embroidery is faded out due to the age and the intense wash. Some difuse gray stains on skirt, not noticeable when the dress is worn. On the left sleeve, near cuff is an area most discolored, the black thread here was faded strongly due to contact with the detergent.



Clean and ready to be worn.
