The Năsăud cojoc is recognisable for its characteristic flame-red embroidery, as well as its ornamental tassels. However, the hanging tassels—sometimes in too dense a fringe—conceal a decoration full of surprises: polychromatic embroidery and in particular appliqués of white leather, embroidered with white thread of exquisite artistry. Specific to Năsăud is silk embroidery, red for women, which is highly floral in design, arranged in bouquets and wreathes in given areas, with spaces in between.
