Bulgarian National Costumes

North-western Thracian Lowland Folk Ensemble
8 Feb 2014 | From Nevena of Bulgaria

I have been seeing a few copies of this postcard in Facebook Postcrossing for weeks now, and finally I was able to get one thanks to Nevena :)

Bulgarian folk costumes consist of pants, shirts, and vests for men, and dresses and aprons for women. The aprons, dresses, and shirts are usually embroidered in regional colors and folk motifs. Red features heavily in Bulgarian folk dress, but black, green, and white are also a part of traditional clothing from Bulgaria's various regions.
