Making clothes is one of the oldest human activities. In the countryside clothes for daily wear and the traditional costumes were made by the women, from hand-woven wool, cotton or linen fabric, either in their home or when getting together for work and chat. Throughout the whole year it was also the women who did the sowing, harvesting and processing of the materials used for clothing.
The traditional costume, worn with pride by all the 4 ethnic groups, is the best representation of traditional clothing and can be “live”- admired – in this Transylvanian region, especially at traditional events.
The seamstresses of Mălâncrav, knowing the age-old techniques of combining traditional pattern and symbols, continue to make traditional costumes with regional patterns, as well as napkins, tablecloth, towels and embroideries.
People who want to take a piece of Transylvania back home, can order or buy such items straight away.
