Cosy embroidered vests

Traveling in central Romania I discovered wonderfully colorful ways to bundle up as winter descends upon us. They make these snugly fitted vests out of shearling with elaborate embroideries or from down with inventivly trimmed patterns - all with a fresh naivity, creating a warm and cosy protection from the darkest cold winter days.The patterns don't stop with the vests, they are as cheery and delightful on the ceramics, building facades, and even the bathhouses...

I ended up with a pile of inspiration! The people were warm and friendly and I look forward to a return visit.
