Traditional costume for the bride in Voss in Norway

Telemark bunad - Norwegian folk costume. I love this one... the colors and embroideries are just perfect! I'm so sorry I'm not Norwegian! :-D

The bunad from Hardanger, Norway is a living tradition and has evolved from a folk costume. The different regions are indicated in the detailing on the costumes. This bunad has a green silk bodies and a black woolen skirt. The white apron has inlaid embroidery, which is known as Hardanger embroidery.

Bunad traditional dress of Norway. (I could see my daughter in something like this. My kids paternal Grandfather is Norwegian.)

More bunads mixed with modern clothing. Very interesting.

This is a woman´s bunad showing the fashion in Vest-Agder in the 1830-1870-ies. The striped skirt and the characteristic tiny, tiny “skirt” at the lower back of the bodice is called “klau”. Her headdress shows how unmarried women wore their hair, tied in colorful ribbons and fastened in a ring at the back of the head.

The silver belt is a new addition to the “Old Valdres Bunad”.

The traditional costume of Norway is called “bunad.” There are about 200 different types, each one representing a different part of the country. The word “bunad” really covers two different types of dress: The first is the traditional garb of a particular location (some of which can be traced back a long, long time – the ones used today usually represent the “fanciest”, holiday version of the dress) and a sort of “party dress” developed in the early 1900s during Norwegian national romanticism.
