    Fashion in the 15th century in Romania

    In the year 1413 textile confection in Romania had Polish influences and after the year 1541 the manufactured clothes received oriental influences. Textile confections were differentiated from one social status to another, low wealth people wore clothes manufactured out thick fabrics such as flax and hemp, while high wealth people wore clothes embroidered with golden string and accessorized with hats with wide brims. For the textile confections worn by lords, fabrics were delivered from the Orient, amongst favorite materials being silk with golden string, Ipra velour and velvet.

    The textile confections worn by the rulers had byzantine influences and were manufactured out of expensive fabrics. The suit worn by the ruler Alexander I of Moldavia was a byzantine model with wide sleeves and manufactured out of velvet.  The suit worn by Stefan the Great was composed out of a silk fabric waistcoat and tunics that were embroidered with floral motifs.
