The art of Kalocsa Embroidery was born in the second half of the 19th century. Originally the needlework was only white and the embroidery patterns were merely made up by holes. At the end of the 19th century, the art of Kalocsa embroidery went through creative innovations, and become more and more colourful. The colour of the traditional costumes, dresses changed with the person's age who was wearing that. The most colourful Hungarian Embroidery was worn by the bride.
