Although at the beginning seemed a bit odd, for the romanian nobility, to see The Royal Family wearing peasant clothes, soon the entire court started wearing folk costumes.

Queen Elizabeth (Carmen Sylva)

Queen Elisabeth wrote in her introduction to the book "The Art of Tatting", written by her friend, Lady Katherin Hoare, published in 1910 in London, a book that wanted a kind of embroidery handbook for young ladies: "Is there a more delightful picture than a romanian peasant woman dressed in a folk suit with a red or orange skirt, with a yellow kerchief covering her black hair, with large, black eyes and a bright green jug on her head, rushing towards the house, or a romanian lady, with splendid garments, with a wonderful white or yellow veil, woven on the loom? "
