    Traditional costumes of Slavs.

    Clothing is a fashion that comes and goes. In Belarus traditional costumes are a fashion of late 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.


    Belarusians of Hrodna region








    Possibly, Belarusians of northern Belarus and south-eastern Latvia











    Don't know the region. But it looks authentic.











    More costumes


































    Reconstructed costumes of Polochans (Smolensk Krivichs) northern Belarus 11th century

    I've been meaning to ask about this...

    When I think of traditionally slavic clothes, I think of the red type of patterns similar to what you can see in this picture.

    When did this style start? And where?

    Did the Slavs of the 400-500AD timeframe also dress like this? Or did it arise much later?

    I'd be grateful if anyone could point me in the direction of information about the physical culture of the early slavs.

    Slavs loved the red colour. So much so that Russians changed the term 'beautiful' to mean 'red'. For example the Red Square in the centre of Moscow (Krasnaya Ploshad') originally meant the 'beautiful square'. Krasny in Slavic languages meant beautiful. In modern Russian it's red.

    Ancient Slavic (Balto-Slavic) symbols from Belarusian land. In red colour.

    There were many types of clothing depending on social status of the person, age, season, ethnographic region, occasion. Part of nobility's attire was the Slutsk Belt. A Slutsk Belt could cost the amount a low rank military officer earned in a year. Common folks had their own woven belts. They are most beautiful featuring ancients symbols of the land.

    Some of the Slavic symbols resemble swatiska.

    lovely pictures, I hope people maintain the memory for these styles of dress. Thanks rozenfeld for the Prokudin-Gorsky link, I had forgotten about him, his photo atlas of the Russian Empire is an amazing work, really almost a magical document from a world gone under.

    "When did this style start? And where?"
    For an answer to this question, the following article could be helpful.
    Triska et al. 2017. “Between Lake Baikal and the Baltic Sea: genomic history of the gateway to Europe.” BMC Genetics.
    From the article (“farmers” refers to Early European Farmers, originally from Anatolia, admixed with local hunter-gatherers): “…the shared genetic drift of farmers has a pronounced gradient: it is large in the areas suitable for agriculture and drops to zero in Ket and Khanty-inhabited boreal forest areas of Siberia…”
    “Neolithic Farmers’ genetic influence is present … to the Altay mountains in the East. East of Altay the signal fades.”

    The designs are present in a variety of artifacts dating to the Neolithic in South Eastern Europe, but also generally in the area from which the process of Neolithization spread.
    Amazing, isn't it?
