Ensemble
1936. European, Eastern. Cotton.

This folk ensemble is an example of pre-WWII era regional costume, remarkable both for its completeness and its relatively good condition. The culture is identified as Yugoslavian. The name (which means “land of south Slavs”) was formally adopted in 1929 for the post-World War I Balkan region known as the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes. The governance and make-up of the country known as Yugoslavia, at the crossroads of a politically sensitive region, changed repeatedly during the 20th century. Temporarily dissolved during World War II, the name was abolished in 2003 in favor of the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro; the state itself ceased to exist by 2006. | THE MET
