In the middle of the 19th century, new modern folk costumes became popular in the Viljandi parish. In the patterns of shirts, waists, coifs, stockings and mittens old elements can be seen, but suits for men with their tunics, breeches, often with waistcoats, and the tight waist-lined jerseys for women have been modelled after the city fashion. On the postage stamp of Kolga-Jaani folk costumes there is a maiden and a married woman.
