The art of making these ultra-feminine, traditional Romanian blouses is passed from generation to generation. The women who craft these blouses have kept the tradition through time, passing their secrets from mother to daughter. Flax, hemp, silk and cotton fabrics have been used since the beginning and the blouses are made to last an eternity. Each blouse expresses an age, social status or life event, with their singular, stand-out designs. Each region has its own patterns and colors. Each blouse is woven with its own history and tells its specific, unique story.
Finding authentic peasant blouses often requires hours of research by our local expert Antonela, who seeks out these treasures in rural shops, small ateliers and among expert embroiderers who know this soulful tradition well.
