Expensive materials in traditional costumes

Expensive materials in traditional costumesResearching traditional costumes from the Svätý Kríž nad Hronom (today Žiar nad Hronom) was made by Bronislava Šajgalíková Búciová during 2016 and 2017 as a part of her final thesis at the Department of Ethnology and Museology at the Philosophy faculty of Comenius University in Bratislava. During the period of rise of city fashion, the traditional costume became old fashioned, archaic and simply not necessary anymore. It´s been thrown away and sometimes burned. Few pieces were preserved only thanks to women that kept it as a memory of their parents or grandparents, and also thanks to folklore groups who, to be able to perform, needed authentic traditional costumes which they collected around their native villages. Thanks to this fact we were able to track down luxury materials from the end of the 19th century and find a lot of new interesting facts and information.
