The marama, the Romanian traditional veil, is worn mainly in southern Romania, southern Moldavia and southern Transylvania. Maramas possibly have an oriental origin and are decorated with white patterns woven onto a white background and often grouped toward the ends. In Arges, the patterns can include coloured geometric motifs. Marama is an essential part of the Romanian traditional female costume in these regions. Worn as a head garment, it sometimes gets so long as to touch the ground. The veil represents a true piece of craftsmanship, featuring silk and gold thread embroideries on see-through fabric.
