It has been made two headdresses in black, and a gorgeous black cape with red lining. You can have a bow in colors from this Bunad too. It is fastened with a pretty little brooch. If you don't have this bow, you can choose between several silk neckerchiefs. Shoe buckles and an umbrella belongs here too.
