Bunjevac traditional folk costume as an identity marker

Wearing Bunjevac traditional ceremonial garments (Ruvo), has a symbolic meaning in the context that it shows the belonging to the specific social/ethnic group, lifestyle, and status. The festive Bunjevac (folk) costume changed in different periods, due of urban and western fashion influence, both in male and female costumes. BEC

Bunjevac Garments: "The Costume is more or less taken from others during the time of Maria Theresa, however there were so many peoples, that the Bunjevci gave it their own characteristics which distingushed them from their Hungarian, German, and Serbian neighbours." The Croatian Bunjevci

"The Bunjevci Croats from the Bačka region are renowned for their beautifully embroidered female dresses, made from real silk from France, and the rattling sound made by the dancers' boots as they dance." Croatian dances - Wikipedia
