The folk costume from Bucovina, Romania: and some tools for its realizationCOSTUMUL POPULAR din BUCOVINA – ROMANIA si unele unelte pentru realizarea acestuia


I was born in Bucovina, in a village near the PUTNA monastery where Stephan the GREAT is buried. It is an area in northern Romania, with an old  folk and tourist tradition.

I grew up in my grandmother’s yard, from  which I learned the crafts practiced by the local women: spinning, weaving, sewing, knitting, embroidering, crocheting,etc.,  crafts that I know and practice ( occasionally) even today.

From my mother and grandmother I inherited some costume pieces and the love for popular colors and motifs. These led to the choice of my future profession in the fashion world.

From my personal collection, from several pieces , I choice for the competition 3 folk costumes  and a fork with a spindle for spinning the wool thread. The costumes consist of: shirt/ie, catrința, bârneț (lap), poale ( skirt under catrința), woolen socks and opinci ( footwear) – made of cowhide. All executed manually .

My modern career as a textile engineer did not take me away from the traditional world of folk costumes, which I did not stop promoting both in Romania and abroad, whenever I had this opportunity.

As a member of SI Club Brasov, I participated in many local, national and international events where I wore the folk costumes: anniversaries of the SI Brasov Club and others, seminars and other events, the 20th anniversary of the SI Club Musashino – Tokyo-Japan – January 2004, SIE CONGRES in Vienn-July 2005, the XVIII CONVENTION of SI in Glasgow -July -August 2007 next to the Romanian flag, etc.

I was happy when I found out about this competition and I wanted to participate, taking advantage of this opportunity to present my treasure “of soul” , in the hope that it will be exposed and seen by many people.


M-am nascut in Bucovina, intr-un sat din apropierea manastirii PUTNA unde este inmormantat Stefan cel Mare. Este o zona in nordul Romaniei, cu veche traditie folclorica si turistica.

Am copilarit in curtea bunicii, de la care am invatat mestesugurile practicate de femeile locului : tors, tesut, cusut, tricotat, brodat, crosetat, etc., mestesuguri pe care le stiu si le practic ( ocazional) si in prezent.

De la mama si bunica am mostenit unele piese de costum si dragostea pentru culori si motive populare. Acestea au condus  la  alegerea viitoarei  mele profesii  in lumea modei.

Din colectia mea personala am ales pentru competitie 3 costume populare si furca cu fusul pentru tors firul de lana.

Costumele se compun din : camasa/ie, catrința, bârneț(cordon), poale ( fusta de sub catrința), ciorapi din fir de lana si opinci (incaltaminte) – din piele de bovina. Toate executate manual.

Cariera mea moderna de inginer textilist nu m-a indepartat de lumea traditionala a portului popular pe care nu am incetat sa-l promovez atat in Romania cat si peste hotare, de cate ori am avut acest prilej.

Ca membra a clubului SI Brasov, am participat la multe evenimente locale, nationale si internationale la care am imbracat costumul popular : aniversari ale clubului SI Brasov si ale altora, seminarii si alte evenimente, aniversarea de 20 de ani a clubului SI Musashino Tokyo-ianuarie 2004, CONGRESUL  SIE – Viena, iulie 2005, a XVIII-a CONVENTIE a SI -Glasgow iulie -august 2007 alaturi de drapelul Romaniei, s.a.

M-am bucurat cand am aflat de aceasta competitie si am dorit sa particip, valorificand si aceasta oportunitate de a prezenta comoara mea “de suflet” , in speranta ca va fi expusa  si  vazuta de multa lume.
