FolkCostume: Bunad and Rosemaling embroidery of upper Hallingdal, Buskerud, Norway

Hello all, I am sorry that I have not posted in a while, but sometimes things get in the way. It occurred to me during my last post that there are entire nations which I have not yet addressed, and I thought I should remedy this. I noticed in particular that I have not yet written anything about Scandinavia.

The National Bunad Council Bunad- og Folkedraktrådet , the authority on national costumes appointed by the government, has developed five categories to grade modern day bunads according to ‘authentic’ regional folk…

FolkCostume&Embroidery: Overview of Norwegian costume, part 4 The North

Hello all, Part three of this overview is forthcoming. I was asked about the costumes of Trondelag, and so I wrote this one first. This is the fourth part of my overview of Norwegian Costumes. This will cover all of Norway from Trondelag north. Here Norway starts to overlap Sapmi, commonly called Lappland. I will not be covering the Saami costumes of Norway, as I have already written about them. They are a completely separate costume tradition, and it makes no sense to separate the part…

As one would…
