Summary/Abstract: The article focuses on the “translation” of the language of clothing, which is characteristic of Bulgarians in modern language. The accumulated knowledge allows us to try to read the “language of clothing” as “our” ancestors “speak” and “write”. In order to read it, I draw both data about the style of Bulgarian folk clothing and examples of folk tales, ritual practices in a family environment. The aim is to reveal this “translated text” as a typical method of affirming the national identity on a local and national scale.
