Finland

Finnish National Costumes were the offspring of National Romanticism.  Today Finland has about 500 National costume models.  It’s divided in two groups, Western and Karelian or Eastern.

Western Finnish is a colorful array of stripes arranged in different patterns in one costume.  Cloth was used generously, as cloth was considered to be a sign of wealth.  Karelian colors in costumes were mostly off-white, black, indigo or red.  Cloth is used sparingly in comparison with Western Finland.

Karelian costumes lavishly decorated with colorful embroidery and traditional lacework.
