History

Xhubleta – used to be worn in the region of Malësia e Madhe. Xhubleta is a type of A-line skirt with frills at the bottom, especially in it's back part. It was made of a large number of pieces and narrow felt belts, which were horizontally placed and interweaved with bands of cords. It is worn hung on shoulders by two wide bands. In 18th century xhubleta was mainly made of many colours, but the colours find nowadays are: black for women and black and white for girls. Other parts of costume with xhubleta are: kraholina, xhoka (short woollen jacket), kërdhokla, paranik, kallmasand footwear, etc. Xhubleta has an ancient origin. It represents similarities to wearing of some Neolithic figures found in Bosnia, but also in other areas of Mediterranean region, they belong to the second millennium BC, and they are linked with old Mediterranean civilisations
