The Orava shirt was tailored from light blue fabric. It narrows at the waist and is slightly widened at the bottom. The sleeve is raised high, narrowed from the elbow down with three pleated sections. Black ribbon applications are sewn into the edges at the front. The whole shirt is trimmed with a wide belt of black karakul sheep pelts. The back is fitted to the back line, slightly flared at the bottom. This type of blouses, also called kabotka, was very popular in Orava in the 19th and early 20th century. It was found in all of Orava’s towns until the end of the interwar period. It was often modelled after Art Nouveau bourgeois fashion whose gaudy apparel reached the countryside, including Orava. In the ornamentation and the design character of this blouse, the influence of Hungarian culture can also be seen. The Orava costume, both male and female, features many elements borrowed from the Magyar culture, since Upper Orava belonged to the Austro-Hungarian monarchy until the end of World War I.
