Scandinavian regional costumes in
The BUNAD Magazine. 
Text and photo: Laila Durán.

The magazine BUNAD has been given out during six years. Recently the editorial committee has decided to cross the borders of Norway and publish articles about regional costumes and reconstructions also from Sweden and Denmark. In the last two magazines there have been visits to Skansen, the ethnographical outdoor museum in Stockholm, one with a traditional 19th century child baptism in Seglora church, and in the latest edition there has been photos of costumes and costume silver form Skåne, southern Sweden, taken at Skånegården, the farm hose from this region.
The beautiful surroundings at Skansen and the good cooperation with Erik Thorell at Skansens Klädkammare, the costume workshop, gave inspiration to several articles and photo coverage. During 2010 Bunad magazine will show colorful Swedish costumes from Härjedalen, Mockfjärd, Dala-Floda and Rättvik. More articles will be published on costume silver and about the traditional dance group for children at Skansen, where Kerstin Wölling teaches Swedish folklore dance and games.

During our visit in Denmark we met a folk dance group from Lolland Falster in their best wear, and a lovely old lady in her costume from the island Läsö which has medieval traditions.

Visit the home page of the magazine:
A year subscription, 4 issues, of the magazine is only 352 NOK, postage to Sweden and Denmark included.

We encourage the readers of Durán Textiles Newsletters to tell us if you have a complete regional costume with an interesting history. Beautiful textile craft, old traditions and beliefs are things that we also like to write about in coming editions of the BUNAD magazine.

Here you can read about “Ellakors, Sållakors and Penningakors” the power and meaning of silver in the Nordic countries three hundred years ago.
