The Romanian blouse, as simple as its cut is, so is its profound meaning. It is not just a basic piece of the feminine folk costume or strictly a traditional piece of clothing, but much more: it is a national symbol, a story, a history book.

The Romanian blouse is the traditional shirt, bequethed by our ancestors, which is carefully worn from one generation to another to transmit and preserve as much of its spiritual symbolism and energy. It is the perfect mix of balance, beauty and tradition, a piece of clothing which not only stood at the basis of the Romanian folk culture, but was also a common witness to the writing of the national history pages, being proudly worn by Romanian women regardless of their age, social, civil, marital, religious and regional status.
