Hungarian Shepherd in traditional coat
Lázló Sáfián herds a couple of hundred merino sheep with the help of his herding dog. He's wearing his traditional shepherd's coat and black felt hat because of the inclement weather. Amazing applique and embroidery work on the collar and revers, and on the sleeves. Practical and warm as well. My friend and colleague Zsolt tells me the pattern on the collar is a traditional tree of life pattern.
A man wearing a traditional Hungarian "szűr". It was worn mainly by shepherds, and village folk. The word szűr "cifraszűr" where "cifra" means fancy, and refers to the fact that most were heavily embroidered.
