More about the Womens bunad from Østfold - (Løken-drakt)

"Løken-drakt" is not a  traditional "bunad", as it is not made from old costume-traditions, but is more a "composed" costume. The embroideries are inspired by flower-decorations on a old cupboard from Lille Løken farm in Trøgstad. The painter of the cupboard was Eric Fredrich Holmgren born in 1750 in Fredrikshald (today Halden). The first Løken-costume was finished in 1949, and can be seen on Haldens Minders Museum.

The Løken-drakt is made in either black or blue.
