Prt3: Telemark bunad is a Norwegian folk costume. A bunad is something that can be for men and for women. This is the female bunad that they use in Norway. This was what a traditional dress and this is how they used to dress in Norway. The bunad is both traditional rural clothes and a well modern 20th century look. Bunads are now used as costumes not for daily wear. Bunads were part of the culture but now Norway dresses according to the yearly worldly fashion.
My Norwegian ancestors came from Krødsherad, Buskerud. This is the "Krylling-Bunad" which comes from that region, and I really want one. This one was made by Bunadstua, in Norway. I currently wear a belted Hallingdal bunad, which I love, but I would also really like to have one that is accurate to my heritage.
