Romanian Embroidery - Traditional Romanian Folk Art
Romulus Hossu © 2005
Rich Romanian embroidery is most famously featured on traditional Romanian clothing - items of which you can pick up as souvenirs while in Romania. Embroidery is also featured on napkins, tablecloths, and decorative towels. Embroidery designs can identify a region of the country or contain a special meaning - while decorative, they are also symbols of cultural beliefs and heritage.
