Detva is famous for its annual folklore festival and because of this Detvan costumes are known around the globe! This is a particularly nice example of more recent work, made in the second half of the 20th century. Rybar (Pani Rybarova) who hand embroidered the blouse, cap and apron using the characteristic tambour technique. The costume includes a blouse, vest, "stan" underblouse, skirt, apron, cap with ribbon bow, and wrap shawl. The previous owner undid the side seam of the woven "stan" underblouse and added velcro to make it easier to put on, but this alteration can easily be undone if you prefer to have the costume in its original form. The "stan" is the woven decorative garment that covers the midsection between the short blouse and the skirt.
