Estonia - Folk Costumes 2005


2005 Estonia Folk Costumes - Jarva County (Ambla and Turi)

In terms of its folk costumes the Jarva County, along with countries of Harju and Viru, belongs to a more or less homogeneous Nort Estonian group. Jarva floral embroideries are often of one colour white, blue or black (dark brown), but there are also multicoloured ones. In earlier times a headdress called Linuk, with the tail covered with a large-flowered design, was in use various parts of Estonia, while the skirts were of a single colour, mostly black. The hemline was sometimes decorated with gorgeous wide bead embroidery, sometimes with ribbons and tinsel. In some places they were worn as late as the middle 19th century side by side with newer vertically striped skirts. Jarva coats have traditionally been black. The men's short jackets and breeches were mostly blue in the middle 19th century, replaced with blue or striped linen ones in the summer.
The man wearing his Sunday best in the Ambla stamp boasts the traditional black Jarva long coat, with the woman wearing the ancient Linuk headdress and a skirt of the older type, with bead embroidery. The girl's striped skirt was in general use in all Estonia.

In the Turi stamp, one of the women in her best clothes has a Linuk headdress with flashy multicoloured embroidery, her companion wearing a smaller cloth cap with floral decorations. FLoral sleeves were widespread all over Northern Estonia.
