Bluza tărănească din România IA Ie, ia, ii The Romanian Peasant Blouse is called “ie” and is a representative piece of Romanian folklore. Rooted in an idyllic past, Romanian women carry on the tradition of sewing peasant blouses. With a manually worked embroidery, just one blouse can take up to 3 weeks to be made. Ia in Art The famous 20th century French painter, Henri Matisse, created important series of paintings which portrayed women in Romanian blouses. He started painting women in ii after he received one as a present from Theodor Pallady, a Romanian painter and his colleague at École des Beaux Arts from Paris.  2. ia with “platcă,” a lined rectangle located over the shoulders – city influence. 3. ia – the regular blouse… There are 3 types of Romanian blouses: 1. the oldest – ia “de-a întregul,” a shirt that used to reach down to the ankles, first discovered in the Cucuteni culture (starting the 6th century B.C.). Terminology... Using flax, hemp, silk or cotton, the front and the back of every ie bear the name “stan”, and the bottom is called “poale”. Every ie “wears” a particular story, as there are different designs for these blouses that differ across the Romanian provinces. Cotton and flax are generally used, but floral patterns are customary. Design Floral patterns are numerous and tell never-ending stories about the history of femininity. In the past, married women or the eldest used to wear simple colors and patterns, while the youngest wore colorful shirts. Contemporary The tradition and the beauty of Romanian blouses passed from generation to generation, leaving the small universe of traditional villages and invading towns and cities in all their spheres: paintings, photography, fashion houses, royal houses, emblems of femininity. June 24 – The International Day of the IE

The name of this celebration, Sanziene, is probably derived from Sancta Diana, the Roman goddess of the forest. Represented as plants, Sanzienele were thought to be anthropomorphic divine entities. In folklore, they were depicted as beautiful women, priestesses in the sun temple, nocturnal beings who hid in forests unbeknownst to humans.

Some believe that a long time ago, people who lived up in the mountains would come together to celebrate the solstices and the equinoxes and to perform rituals through which they glorified the sun. The megaliths in Calimani Mountains testify to the possibility that such performances did indeed exist because archeologists discovered etched on them anthropomorphic representations of the sun.

According to mythology and tradition, Sanzienele float in the air or walk the earth the night between June 23 and June 24, they sing and dance, and as they do so, they spread fecundity among crops, animals, birds, and humans, they give flowers their perfume and endow certain weeds with curative effects, and they heal the illnesses and the suffering in the world.
