Matyo Hungarian Folk Dresses
Matyo folk art, its strikingly unique, wonderfully colorful embroidery and motifs, one of the most beautiful and well known folk arts in Hungary became part of the UNESCO World Heritage in December 2012.
Matyo is from the Northeastern region of Hungary, namely from the town of Mezokovesd. The following Matyo folk dress photos of Matyo dresses, designs, aprons, scarves, blouses, wedding dresses, head pieces, etc. were taken in 1940 by Mihaly Erdodi (Erdődi Mihály). The photos are in the Hungarian Museum of Ethnography in Budapest.
The video below was made at the Matyo Festival in Mezokovesd in 2010: the Matyo Folk Ensemble is dancing in the streets, and you can see the dresses in real life.
