IA – Traditional Romanian Blouse (Celebrated, Internationally, for the first time on 24/06/2013)
Romanian Peasant Blouse is called “ie” and is a representative piece of Romanian folklore. Rooted in an idyllic past, Romanian women carry on the tradition of sewing peasant blouses. With a manually worked embroidery, just one blouse can take up to 3 weeks to be made.
Every ie “wears” a particular story, as there are different models to make these blouses, according to Romanian provinces. Cotton and flax are generally used, but floral patterns are customary. "ie"(singular) - "ii" (plural)
