BANAT: Folk Costume Main Feature: Women wear Two Aprons, One or both with fringes

Note 1: Men's costumes from Banat have some common elements. In the summer, men wore wide cotton pants, and large, un-tucked shirts. During cold weather men's pants were tight on the legs and were made of wool. Style of lace and embroidery which decorated the shirts, pants, and vests were somehow different from one sub-zone to another. Also different were the winter coats.
