Bringekluten by Heidi Fossnes
This book deals with the small, but still significant cloth, that has been used for many Norwegian national costumes over the past centuries. In this simple little material, women have put all their creativity. Countless techniques have been used, and the use of symbols is extensive. The great diversity of patterns shows that women could really shine and show their skills in sewing, sense of form, and color.
The author has created the book because she has a strong desire to show off the great diversity of patterns and techniques that lie in these small garments. Quite simply, this is a real treasure trove of color and splendor. About 400 garments are presented in this magnificent book.
