Flickr Favorites : Traditional Costume 't Gooi, The Netherlands
Today in the Flickr Favourites it's the turn of the traditional costume of 't Gooi in The Netherlands. The area is also called Gooiland, and lies in the southeast of the province of Noord-Holland. Its traditional costume is often described together with that of Eemland, the neighbouring area in the northeast of the province of Utrecht, because of their similarities. The most remarkable part of the costume is the lace cap; there are two types, the round one and the square one. Both look very much like the cap from Volendam, but with smaller wings. The wings are pinned onto the cap in the squared type, giving it a squared appearance. The costume itself is a dark stiff version of a late 19th century fashion.
