The author describes the national costume of the Croats in the most southern district of Hungary. The national costume of the Croats of Baranja has become renowned due to a richness in the embroidery and a diversity of textile patterns. From the middle of the past century men gradually gave up their traditional national costume, while factory-made textiles slowly became dominant in the women's costume. The author describes the materials of national costumes, the way in which they are made, their styling, manner of decoration etc.
