BUNADER - Kvinnebunad fra Ofoten

In Norway every girl and young women has a traditional costume. These costumes are highly sustainable, they are made in such a way that they can easily made smaller and larger. These costumes stay in the family for a long time. Revalueing traditions and craftmanship will be or is already a counter movement to all the cheap textile around.
