More about the Romsdals bunad

Mali Furunes created the Bols°y-bunad in the 1940s. The first bunad was shown in 1947. It is really popular among the Romsdal-women.

The colors of this bunad can be either blue, as Holly has on this picture, or it can be made with a red bodice and blue skirt.

The bodice is a copy of an old bodice from 1700s, that can be seen at the Romsdalsmuseum.
