The Romanian Coat  (suman) is a long coat (up to the knee), made of cloth, dimie, thick cloth. This model, also represented at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, is still made today by authentic embroidery artisans who have inherited the art of traditional embroidery from generation to generation.

The Romanian Coat (Suman) is a piece of high refinement and quality. Worn by Queen Mary, then reinterpreted by international fashion designers, such as Tory Burch, Dior, Free People, Valentino etc - this piece has been the subject of much debate about ethics in "cultural appropriation" and the plagiarism of traditional models as designer pieces. Tismanan embroidery with bagpipes is a luxurious, timeless piece of clothing, created after the canon of traditional transgenerational craft.

About the history of this model of suman (coat) dates back to the early twentieth century, originally worn in the Oltenia area, Princess Marie of Edinburgh / Queen Mary of Romania, a true fashion icon of the time and admirer of Romanian clothes and culture integrated into the clothing of the Royal family.

The ornamentation is crafted by applying black lace, called "beam" (the old one), "gaetan" (the new one) made by twisting the wool thread. Today, the commercial product called "suitas" is used. The lace is applied on the seam of the dimie sheets. So, what we call ornamentation today, in the past had the practical purpose of strengthening and hiding the seams. "
