Technology Preparation of “Xhubleta”

Silvana Nını


Without any doubt, in the Albanian folk heritage, the greatest interest in terms of dresses appeared to be xhubleta. This is a popular costume known as a distinctive element in traditional dressing of woman in the mountain areas of Northern Albania. Several archaic features make this clothing distinct out of many other popular clothing, making this the most interesting object for study for many researchers. The xhubleta is a complex garment, consisting of several elements that make it complete, and give it a final shape. Each of the components of xhubleta has its own shape, its own size, and features, which by joining together create a harmonious and interesting ensemble. But what is the technology preparation of xhubleta? What are the materials and its elaboration process? What are the cutting and sewing processes that give it the undulating bell form? What is the image that creates this dress? In producing this popular costume it is very important the combination of the material with the cutting way, functionality and the final image created.
