About this design
Fancy Mantle Embroidery - Hungarian Folk Art Magnets
Authentic Fancy Mantle embroidery folk art from Hungary on vintage beige background.

Description of motif:

The mantle (szűr) was made cut straight lines and rectangular piece of baize. It was wore by sheperds for centuries. The mantle defended the sheperd from the cold, rain, wind, snow, gave shading against the sun. It was the pillow, blanket for him. However, the Fancy Mantle (Cifraszűr) has been counted on formal dresses. A peasant bachelor not married since he hasn't attained Fancy Mantle. It's already an important role in courtship. When the suitor left the girl's house deliberately left his Fancy Mantle. Next day if it was in the house, he was welcomed back as a suitor, but if he found it hanging on the porch, he was rejected - "His mantle is exposed" (Hungarian saying) - and did not welcome anymore as a suitor.
