Bunader og tradisjoner fra Setesdal
Format: 24x32 cm, 186 sidor
This book is about the traditions and bunads of Setesdal in Norway - the traditional costumes which have been developed from the old folk costumes. We meet people from Bykle, Valle and Bygland, dressed in their festive bunads, but also look back and see how people dressed in the past. The book shows hundreds of photos, taken throughout the year, following the seasons and work on the farms.
With emphasis on everyday life, handy craft and the lokal textile tradition you will meet people in every stage of life. We see the bunads used at celebrations such as baptism, confirmation and weddings, and as everyday attire while people are working with haying, or spinning and weaving.
