The paper deals with folklorism manifested in clothes and textile culture since the second half of the 20th century until today. It deals with a relation between the traditional clothes, the clothes of countryside residents engaged in agriculture and stock farming and the different groups' clothes through the prism of a category of folklorism. The authoress is a specialist working in the Slovak National Museum - the Museum of History in Bratislava. She uses selected artifacts of the textile culture from the collections of the museum. She studies chronologically the re-emergence of folklorism and the historical and social background of this process. The development of the clothes is examined at two levels: 1- traditional clothes as a source of inspiration leading to the formation of the national clothes and 2-traditional clothes as a folk costume.
