Flickr Favorites : Traditional Costume Katwijk aan Zee, The Netherlands


Today in the Flickr Favourites it's the turn of the traditional costume of Katwijk aan Zee in The Netherlands. After Scheveningen last week, we still stay at the North Sea coast of Holland, but go 16 km to the north. Again a fishing village turned into a beach resort. The costume is very similar to the costume of Scheveningen, except for the lace cap which is smaller than in Scheveningen, and the head iron end ornaments are square and not oval as in Scheveningen.

For more flickr favourites see ArtMind's blog.

I love folk costumes. Whenever I visit a foreign country, I like visiting the folklore art museums.
