Romanian traditional floral embroidered long tunic

120 00 euro
Quantity:

SOLD

This listing is for a beautiful woman's long flower embroiderd long tunic from western Romania (Transylvania- Maramurs),We found this piece from a family  village where the folk creations are preserved in their original forms, where peasant culture remains a strong force and medieval life prevails, as it does nowhere else in Europe . A Romanian cratfed garment gives the body a spiritual beauty. It is distinct from the costumes from other regions through its untold wealth and the sublte harmony. This tunic is a work of art displaying elaborate hand floral embroidery. It's completely handmade from homespun hemp and cotton fabric with delicate hand embroidered parts down the front, along the shoulde floral patterns (cross stitch technique)

Please note that some of these blouses have relatively narrow armholes, so they do not fit the same way contemporary ladies' blouses do (see measurements below). Suitable from XS-L

Condition: Very Good Condition - some small spots from age in the fabric.

This tunic would be very chic to wear on travel and can be mixed with flats,espadrilles.

Please note that there will always be a look of age and wear even in the most pristine of vintage/antique textiles, which is of course desirable as it distinguishes an antique from a new piece. The scars of the past only add to their character. The colour of our product is reproduced as accurately as possible. 

All vintage / antique fabrics need to be treated and require gentle handling with the cleaning method deserving the greatest consideration

The tradition of manufacturing the blouse is still kept among very rare artisans who are living on forgotten lands of ancient Romanian villages. The style of the ancient blouse was the source of inspiration for many artist and fashion designers around the world. BLOUSE ROUMAINE SHOP is an online concept store bringing you the finest selection of authentic handmade Romanian blouse, BRS is your online gateway to a legendary piece of art.



The first Blouse Roumaine prototype is considered to be created starting the 6th century B.C in Cucuteni culture. The ancient piece was called "ie". The name derived from Latin "tunicae linae" which means thin tunic.



The contemporary name of the traditional romanian blouse is actually renamed by Mattise's painting. La Blouse Roumaine is an oil-on-canvas painting by Henri Matisse from 1940. It measures 92 × 73 cm and is held at the Musée National d'Art Moderne in Paris.



Inspired by the painting of Henri Mattise, Yves Saint Laurent created for autumn-winter 1981 collection, “La blouse roumaine”.



In the past years most of the world’s top fashion designers were inspired by the Romanian embroidery style such as Gaultier, Tom Ford, Emilio Pucci, BCBG Max Azria and many others.



The tradition of manufacturing the blouse is still kept among very rare artisans who are living on forgotten lands of ancient romanian villages. You can order a custom made blouse,handmade by the legendary artisans on this website.
