The Romanian Embassy organized an exhibition showcasing the nation’s traditional costumes and other accessories on 12 March at the Al-Babtain Library in Kuwait City. The first-ever exhibition dedicated to displaying traditional Romania costumes in Kuwait was held to mark the upcoming International Day of La Francophonie.
The International Francophonie Day is celebrated by the 77 member states of the International Organization of La Francophonie every 20 March to celebrate French language and culture. The Romanian Ambassador to Kuwait H.E. Daniel Tanase welcomed the gathering of dignitaries and people from various nationalities.
The traditional costumes worn by people in villages across Romania were exhibited, featuring the embroidery and motifs significant to the culture in the region. A recurring pattern embroidered on most costumes was the design of a charm that was supposed to protect the wearer. Another interesting display was of the oldest Romanian costume, a 180 year-old handmade outfit that boasted a special needle-work pattern that gave it an embossed effect. Other striking displays included a women’s head scarf called Marama and a pair of shiny silk shoes.
The exhibition also featured a Romanian musical concert by Constantin and Carmen Stavrat that brought out the melodic richness of traditional Romanian music.
