  The Bulgarian woman did by herself her clothes and all the necessary cloth for the family. Embroidery was subject to the highest esthetic requirements. Its beauty comes from the masterful lining up of colors and forms and its high artistic value is due to the complicated technical realization. Embroidery was among the most important home activities - male and female shirts were decorated with rich embroidery. The present a young woman would most often make to her fiancce would be an embroidered shirt. Amazingly beautiful are the colors on female socks and gloves. One could tell the age and social status of the woman by the suit, richly decorated with embroidery and lace in addition to which was the jewelry.
