The article describes women-s and men-s costumes from villages around Maruševec. The basic garment of the woman-s dress was a wide, gathered skirt, with a vest sewn to it, decorated with lace and embroidery. A blouse with wide sleeves was worn under it. The costume was completed by an embroidered apron, scarf, and shoes or boots, as well as a woolen shoulder-scarf or coat in winter. Men used to wear linen shirts, linen trousers and woolen vests, with obligatory hats and boots. A woolen coat was added in winter. Nowadays this costume has practically disappeared from usage. Some parts can still be seen on old women, and is also used as a death-bed attire. There are attempts at the reconstruction of the costume, however, such as the successful action in an elementary school in Varaždin. They made new costumes using the museum specimens as a sample.
