The Spirit of Macedonia’s costumes are replicas of the traditional attire worn by past generations of Greeks in the region of Macedonia. The two variants of the men’s costume worn by our performers were military uniforms in the Greek War of Independence in 1821 and the Macedonian Struggle for freedom in 1904. Both are still worn as standard attire by the Evzones, the Greek Presidential Guard, today. The two variants of the women’s costume are examples of the standard village dress for centuries through the early 20th century.
Our costumes are crafted in Greece, handmade by traditional costume maker T. Poliou of Thessaloniki.
