Gallery: sheepskin jackets

Cloaks (sarică or bitușca), coats (cojoc) and waistcoats (pieptar) made from sheepskin developed a regional identity both in cut and decoration. The extent of the decoration on sheepskin coats and jackets depends on the purpose of the garment. Cojoace and pieptare made for work wear generally have little decoration, whereas a cojoc or pieptar for festive wear is often completely covered with embroidery and appliqué.
