Matyó embroidery avaThe Hungarian Matyó ethnic group is among the few local communities who managed to preserve and treasure its ancient-old heritage, including traditional embroidery and other clothing crafts (as well as household crafts: pottery, doll making, ornamental furniture painting, and honey gingerbread making). The Matyó embroidery is famous not only in Hungary but far outside its borders. Its designs are really rich in color and texture and require profuse imagination and skill. This ornamentation is so time-consuming that it takes months and even years to make the whole set of Matyó folk clothing.

Hungarian couple avaThe folk costume of Hungary is rather diverse; it differs from the other Eastern-European national dresses. The Hungarian traditional outfit has a lot of Renaissance and Baroque features. But until the beginning of the 20th century, the folk clothing of Hungary was simpler and had fewer decorations. Only in the 1930s, colorful threads were added to the patterns, and the amount of embroidery was increased. Today, Hungarian folk dress is rarely used by locals. Though, it still is unique and outstanding.
