Bunadsliv Frå handsaum til industri by Åse Vigdis Festervoll
This important book sets Norwegian national costume into a social context and food, flagging, knowledge, quality, local identity, and use are discussed and critically examined. Bunader are part of a living, cultural heritage, used and valued still today. The bunad industry is a large and the big question is how to manage the bunad heritage in the future.
This book attempts to embrace the overarching themes that are common to the work of national costumes throughout Norway. Sunnfjord bunad is used as an example of how trends in society and individuals have influenced the development and work of folk costumes and traditional dresses.
