The traditional Bulgarian costume is one of the most typical elements of Bulgarian folk culture. Each region has its own costume style with unique motifs. The Bulgarian costume contains many elements from the pagan beliefs and legends. For example, no one wore clothes with fully symmetrical decorations because it was believed that full symmetry was a diabolical creation. Therefore, elements were often added and removed; those were, so to say, intentional mistakes.Bulgarian women used to make their costumes (called ‘nossia’) all by themselves.
