Default Cultural Macedonian Costume in a book from 1820





I want to point out the relevence of the color Red in relation to Macedonian costumes - http://www.macedoniadirect.com/costumes/default.asp

Quote:
Traditional costumes in these parts of Macedonia are characterized by the numerous pieces of clothing, made mostly of white klashna, as well as the various headdresses and rich prevailing red colors.
and

Quote:
The eastern Macedonia type includes: the Middle Vardar Valley, and the Shop ethographic area.

The costumes from these regions are generally lighter and rather plain, without massive jewelry, exquisite decoration and lively colors. Red is the prevalent color, and other decoration includes variegated cords, braids, bands and srma.
And for those of you who do not know what a serai is it is a Turkish Palace.

And for those who do not know what a shawl is click here for a quick overview - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawl
