Swedish folk costume ...

My friend Eva-Lotta was right - I wasn´t disappointed when I finally held a copy of Scandinavian Folklore in my hands. It´s the book about folk costumes that you couldn´t even dream up. This is a photo from the book release held at Biologiska muséet in Stockholm last Tuesday. The photography is beautiful, you learn a lot about how folk costumes have been used and it´s a great source of inspiration. It´s written in Norwegian, Swedish and English - which is really good if you wish to send it to a friend abroad, for instance. But I have to warn you that it´s NOT a good bedtime read if you are easily agitated. Too much colour, too many pretty patterns – I could feel my blood pressure rising with every page I turned. The authour Laila Durán has spent a whole year travelling around in Sweden and Norway visiting museums and private collections to take photograhps of folk costumes in action. And a lot of the models in the book had gathered in Stockholm to celebrate the release. Two Flokullor: Anna-Karin Jobs Arnberg and Lill-Karin Gustavsson in their Dala-Floda costumes. Like I´ve said before it´s my own personal favourite among Swedish folk costumes. There is something about the colourful embroidery that I can´t resist. And I can´t believe my luck. Next weekend I will be in DalaFloda to attend a workshop arranged by Anna Karin Jobs Arnberg. Then I will try to learn how to do påsöm - the Dala Floda embroidery. Their knitting wasn´t bad either. Anyone for a close up of that mitten? Yes, I thought so. And Lill-Karin has knitted sleeves, made in the traditional twined technique. The sleeves were usually knit in black and white wool and then dyed red. I wasn´t the only one there taking photos of the event. And even if you happen to like dressing in traditional style, it doesn´t prevent you from using the latest technology. It was some party! And plenty to eat, too. Served by maids in 18th century costumes. Can you believe that going to events like this one is part of my job? No, I also find that hard. And now I´ll have to go on another diet and that will be really hard. If you live in the US and would like to buy the book you will get a special price that includes the postage, so it won´t cost much more than what we pay in Sweden or Norway. Just send Laila an email. And you can find her blog about the making of the book here.

Last year I began reading the blog, Folklore Fashion, it was brim full of breathtaking photography of Scandinavian folk costumes antiques and reproductions. Having never really studied much about this type of costume - I was quite intrigued. Some of the techniques I recognize (the gauging on the skirts, for instance) from 1860s sewing, but as for the stunning color, fabric, and embroidery combinations - I think they are just fascinating! It's amazing how all the different regions have their own distinct folk costume! They are so varied and each just gorgeous....looks like the stuff of fairytales.... These images are from the new book Scandinavian Folklore, which I plan on adding to my research collection as soon as I can budget it in! :) Looks like a beautiful resource book!

Winterberry Sparkle / Pink, Gold Ornate Trim, Ribbon, Sari Border / India, 1 1/8" x 1" / Valentine's Day Decorating, Sewing, Craft Supplies I confess that I've been hoarding this one, I love the color so much. But we all need a little cheer in the midst of this cold winter, so I'm sharing what cheer I have. The color of this trim is so divine! Delicious raspberry pink, with magenta and bright pink leaves outlined in gold, all in a repeating pattern. Traditionally used as Sari borders, but the adornment possibilities are endless! Tablecloth borders, pillowcase borders, jeans trim, belt, jacket trim.....get inspired and create! 1 1/8" wide x 1 yard. If you order multiple yards, it will come in one long piece. This beautifully embroidered trim comes from India. I hand-select these beautiful trims from a huge storehouse in India, where there are 7 stories of trim from floor to ceiling. I'm like a kid in a candy shop over these beauties- the colors are overwhelming! When I first found them, I didn't know what I would do with all of them, but I knew I needed to bring them home. I'm so happy I can share them with you! **As many of my products come from Nepal, a portion of my proceeds will be donated to the Unicef and Americares Nepali relief efforts. ** All content (which includes all text, photography, product names, product descriptions) is All rights reserved - Woman Shops World, Inc.
