The various ethnic groups which co-existed in Evros prefecture, and in Thrace as a whole, from the start of the Ottoman Empire ― Greeks, Pomaks, Armenians, Jews, Turks, and Roma ― contributed to the sartorial diversity of the region. The Treaty of Lausanne in 1923 fixed the boundaries of Greek Thrace and gave rise to the most important movement of populations for the Greek people. When the refugees from the Black Sea, Asia Minor, and north-eastern Thrace settled all over northern Greece, including Evros prefecture, they enriched the sartorial picture with their own costumes, and changed the sartorial map of Evros prefecture beyond recognition.
