My Flickr Favorites : Traditional Costume West Friesland, The Netherlands
Today we move from the north of The Netherlands back to the west of The Netherlands, so we have almost made the total round tour of The Netherlands. We are back in the province of North-Holland, and look at the area which is called West Friesland. The costumes are similar to the ones in Friesland, but the lace cap and the head-iron are different. The women wear a rich costume (silk, wool, damask) and lots of jewelry. The lace cap has a small pleated and starched tail, and the head iron is partly visible.
