This book will acquaint the reader with authentic Bulgarian everyday, festive and ritual folk costumes. Part of those shown in the book belongs to the collections and exhibitions of a number of museums throughout the country, while another part has been preserved in the home chests for many generations. The author has underlined the diversity and the wealth of colours in female and male costumes and their components: shirts, smocks, sleeveless jackets, aprons, belts, waist-bands, socks, stockings, shoes, etc. as well as the exceptional embroidery decorations. Hand-made, with a unique cut and components, with wisdom, deep symbolism and diversity in decoration put in by their makers Bulgarian folk costume delights the eye of the viewer and is a spring of inspiration…

"The motifs in Bulgarian embroidery are so divers and so intertwined that they could serve as an example to the skillful artist in Europe." Felix Canitz, AD 1874

"What unearthly beauty there is in these models, unparalleled fantasy! What gracefulness! What exquisiteness! What mastership! What dexterity! All that the human genius can create."
At the Fashion Congress held in Paris in AD 1966 in connection with the exhibited collection of Bulgarian traditional folk costumes.
