"The motifs in Bulgarian embroidery are so divers and so intertwined that they could serve as an example to the skillful artist in Europe." Felix Canitz, AD 1874 "What unearthly beauty there is in these models, unparalleled fantasy! What gracefulness! What exquisiteness! What mastership! What dexterity! All that the human genius can create." At the Fashion Congress held in Paris in AD 1966 in connection with the exhibited collection of Bulgarian traditional folk costumes.
