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.
