In olden days, the women's apparel was worn for work in the fields. Nowadays it is seen only at religious and family festivities.

The dzaquillon, the weekday attire worn by women out haymaking, is made up of different colours, a dress with a criss-crossed pattern, with a single-colour linen apron that is decorated at top and bottom. A shawl, a straw hat, white stockings and black shoes complete this attire. Bright colours are kept for the little girls and girls in their teens, with ladies wearing darker, more discreet colours. This apparel is worn less frequently nowadays than the bredzon. It has become unusual to see a woman dressed in the dzaquillon on the arm of her husband wearing his bredzon. In the usual way the dress is now worn only by singers in choirs, dancers and a few waitresses.
