Estonia - Folk Costumes 1996


1996 Hiiumaa Folk Costumes
Estonian folk costumes as they are today were worn in the 19th, in some places in the 20th century. Some features of the costumes, however, go back to a very distant past. Today folk costumes are worn by many people to song and folklore festivals, by some woman on other festive occasions. On the islands folk costumes persisted long and possessed a lot of differences as compared with those worn on the mainland. The folk costumes of the islanders of Hiiuma, settled by people from Saaremaa, the mainland and Sweden early millennium, retain features from all those areas.

Emmaste
The folk costumes of Emmaste have been pictured as worn by a bride and her mother. Thebride is wearing a special chaplet and a red-striped skirt, while the mother's dress of a somewhat older type is mostly back.

Reigi
The folk costumes of Reigi in the stamp are from 19th century. The sitting young married woman wears a high headdress with a festive pleat. The girl beside her is dressed in mourning, with a black pleat and lace sleeves. The latter are of a quite recent origin.
