It is strongly influenced by Slavic tribes. The costume of women from this end consists of two embroidered aprons – front and back. The back one is called “bruchnik” or “back curtain” and is made of embroidered cotton cloth with pleats, velvet, golden edging and lace.

The front apron is called “futa” and the interesting thing about it in a geographical perspective is that along the bank of river Vit in Middle Northern Bulgaria two of those front aprons are worn.

The shirt of the Danubian women is made of cotton, embroidered with lace on the sleeves, and the skirt is made of a red woolen cloth.

Until the middle of the 18th century the male costume, especially in the southern regions of Bulgaria, is prevalently white. By the middle of the 19th century, the white costume spread to the west of the Iskar River and to some regions to the east of it.

The Northwestern men’s suit consists of tight trousers. The white cotton shirt is richly decorated, and on top of it can be worn an embroidered vest called “jamadan“. In union with the rich decoration of the upper garment is the belt – red in color. In the cold weather, the northerners wore knee-length vests with long sleeves or elbow-length ones.
