National costumes (7)
|This project has a paid content.||
People of all nationalities have their customs and traditions. A folk costume is one of them. What do we know about traditional costumes of different countries?
"A national costume (also regional costume, national costume, or traditional garment) expresses an identity through costume, which is usually associated with a geographic area or a period of time in history. It can also indicate social, marital or religious status. If the costume is used to represent the culture or identity of a specific ethnic group, it is usually known as ethnic costume (also ethnic dress, ethnic wear, ethnic clothing, traditional ethnic wear or traditional ethnic garment). Such costumes often come in two forms: one for everyday occasions, the other for traditional festivals and formal wear". This is the information from the Wikipedia.
The more we know about traditions and customs of different nationalities, the more tolerant we are. Before travelling to a foreign country we should get as much information as possible about it . A national costume can help us to expand our knowledge of a country, its history and native people.
In this project we try to collect information about different folk costumes.
