Central Greece: Back of Desfina costume "Female Desfina costume from the Phokis region as it developed in the early 20th c. in a very simple composition. It has two chemises one on top of the other, a short sleeveless white coat kept in position with a characteristic of the region dark blue striped belt, as well as the narrow long apron with yellow or gold cord embroidery. Last but not least a white butter muslin kerchief ornamented with small pompoms or 'chenille' fringe."

The women's Desfina is a peasant dress found in the region of Fokida. The main centres in this region consist of Delphi, Amphissa, Arahova and Desfina (hence the name.) The costume is finished with strands of gold coins worn across the chest and a matching set of coin earring. This represented the unmarried woman’s dowry, therefore the greater the number of coins, the greater the dowry.
