ESTONIA

The folk costumes of South Estonia preserved their old features for a long time. Mulgimaa especially stands out for its archaic style: cut of the shirts, unstiched wrapskirts, kerchiefs, hip-arounds with archaic plant ornaments, linen and woollen wraps, men’s trousers.
In Vőru county and Southern Tartu county old fashions were also preserved for a long time. In the southern part of Vőru county there can be seen common features with the Latvians costumes and in the southers part of Estonia the Russian influence can be traced.
