|The pouch or side pocket - "algibeira" is one of the most iconic item from Minho traditional costume. It almost always takes the shape of a heart, or resembles itself with a woman's shape. It is a small outer pocket, used between the skirt and the apron of the popular costumes. The word "Love" is embroidered very often. Embroidered in wool or cotton treads, with beads and sometimes sequins, they come in the most varied colors.
