Jewellery - “chelnik”, “trepki”, bracelets “rogatki”, necklace with gold coins, buckles.

👉See how the beautiful Tsveti presents herself here in her business card:

"I was born and raised in the small northwestern town of Koynare. I am named after my grandmother Tsvetanka. I am 20 years old, a sophomore. I like to spend time with my loved ones. In our family we follow all Bulgarian traditions and customs!

The feeling that the traditional Bulgarian costumes bring me is unique! When I wear a costume, I feel like I'm transported to a time when this clothing was an integral part of a woman's daily life. It is difficult to describe this feeling in a few words. I would wear the costume on any occasion and with the greatest pleasure!

In my opinion, Bulgaria has the strength to go through everything! "
