Estonia - Folk Costumes 1998


1998 Kihnu Folk Costumes

On Kihnu Island, folk dress in worn daily until today. Older Kihnu folk costumes were in one colour, almost white on festive occasions and grey in daily use, although women's ruffled skirts could also be black or blue. The striped skirts one can see in Kihnu today are rather a new development. Men's knee-length coats are considered to be particularly old. Men also wore seal flipper shoes with upturned toes. Women used red straps to lace up their moccasions and also their skirts were hemmed with red. Their embroidered decorations were mainly in blue and red. Stockings with a wide band of colorful embroidery and figured woolen gloves are still in use today. The Kihnu men's wear (troil) has experienced a revival recently and its quite popular also outside Kihnu. Small children were made patchwork caps of printed cotton. Of the two stamps the dress of the old couple dates from the middle 19th century and that worn by the family from early 20th century.
