Albanian cultural heritage is one of the most ancient pillars of national culture, which shows the material and spiritual evidence of our people. Our tradition, in this regard, is very rich. A folk costume is a stand-alone exhibition of folk art. It is amazing the variety of folk costumes in our country. To achieve the set objectives, a range of methods of social sciences are used: the method of observation (direct and cultural anthropology), analysis and the historical method. The purpose of this paper is studying the use of folk costumes embroidered according to our tradition, but also the embroidery of modern timesin more detail. - Are these embroideries of special value? - The commodification of national costumes and ambiguity as a value in time and space? - The use of national clothing in today's age of globalization. Today there is a relatively large use of these garments embroidered with gold thread, especially of costume parts such as: dressing with dimia and gold vest, dress with dollama etc., therefore we have a variety of motifs and patterns of national costumes, beautifully embroidered by the hands of girls, women and men, embroidered with much taste and mastery that have been applied to clothing once, but which even today continue to be quite present.
