Norway - Norwegian National Costume

Norwegian National Costume

Sent by Gro, a postcrosser from Tanager in Norway.

This is from Wikipedia : Bunad is a traditional Norwegian national costume, typically of rural origin. Bunads are local to Norway's traditional districts, and the result both of cultural evolution and organized efforts to discover and modernize older designs. The designs are typically elaborate, with embroidery, scarves, shawls and hand-made silver or gold jewellery. There are bunads both for men and women, although women's bunads are more diverse and popular.
