The generous use of fringe gives this apron an overall dramatic appearance. The tapestry weave combines an attractive mix of patterns and, with the fringe, creates a handsome example of regional garment. It is important to note that Yugoslavia itself did not exist as an entity until after 1918, first as the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, and, after 1929, as Yugoslavia. This apron was given to the collection in 1932 by Henry F. DuPont, who had an important folk costume collection, when the entity was known by that name.
