Among the creative aspects of the culture of the Serbian nation, traditional costumes occupy one of the most important places because of their role in everyday life, their significance for ethnic identity, and their value artistically and aesthetically.
They are known mostly because of the costumes which have been saved from the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries, characterized by a great diversity in form and decoration. This variety and richness is present in both men's and women's costumes. Each region had its own special form of dress.


According to the way a person was dressed, one could distinguish not only where they were from, but also of which nationality they were in multi-ethnic milieus. Various national costumes with manifold significance among the people were
exposed to a wide range of influences in the history of their development. Thus, they incorporated a variety of elements from preceding periods, together with the features of the period when they were made and worn.
