Bunad silver Voss Winter Bunad

Voss Winter Bunad

The Bunad tradition in Voss has always been strong, and the variations in shirt, apron, belt and chest cloth often had a personal twist. Today the variations are smaller, but there is still a difference between married and unmarried. For the Winter Bunad married women use a white headdress while unmarried use nothing. Only the married women use a chain with Dalar. The Bunad has no shirt, instead it has a white neckerchief and a long sleeved coat with a deep v-front. The Bunad has a black patterned apron.

The silver: The shirt is held together with either a double neck button or a small brooch at the neck, and a bigger brooch further down. The coat has silver buttons and married women use a chain with Dalar around the neck. The winter Bunad has oxidized silver. Shoe buckles, a knife, a timepiece, earrings and a ring completes the picture.
