Beautiful 18th century folk costume from Norway. Love the colors and patterns though

Text and photo Laila Duran © The “Old Valdres Bunad” is one of the first embroidered bunads designed in 1914. The motif was copied from a bonnet dated the middle of the 19th century.

He reminds me of my grandfather... Hardanger Folkemuseum, Norway. The mens bunad jacket and waistcoat are made from red woolen cloth with green edging, decorated with plenty of forged silver buttons. Used on special occasions are the silver ring, watch chain, and the colorful silk scarf. The wooden goblet, like the one he is holding, was used all over all over Scandinavia.

A dark green waistcoat can also be worn with the red jacket. At the wrists he is wearing embroidered wristlets of coarse woolen cloth with napped edgings. The hat is trimmed with silk ribbon and a silver lace. The collar on his shirt is closed with a silver button with hanging leaves. Hardanger

Wow, these pics are from a blog, Folklore Fashion. She has a book out and another on the way. They are awesome photos and I must find out how to purchase these books! Amazing! What an undertaking!

My Norwegian grandmother made me a costume for my doll just like this cute girl is wearing.

Scandinavian's really do like the color red. "So THAT's why Red has been my fave for over 50yrs.!" says pinner PJ.
