Sogn Fjord Bunad

During sjonaleister class, we had a little outing to Bergen Husfliden. In the window were several examples of men's and women's bunad dress. Our teacher, Hege-Theresa, gave us a "tour" and talked of the costumes to our class.

Of interest to me was the costume for Sogn Fjord, the larger region where my family emigrated from Norway through Canada to southern Wisconsin.

The small inverted "v's" and loops represent the mountains and water of the Sogn Fjordan region.

And, there was more good food to look at and eat from Godt Brod baked goods store.
