Following the path of folklore

After seeing so much variety of costumes and accessories in the Estonian Song and Dance Celebration, with so many colors, I wondered where they all have come from. The variety and richness of folklore that exists in such a small country is just amazing!

So I went to a craft market where I found a seller of Estonia national costume fabrics. You can see how the fabrics are all labeled by the regions where they originally come from. Using this kind of color and pattern code people can recognize from which region the person comes from.
