    Post Re: Germanic Folk Dress

    Officially there isn't an English folk dress but this is due to several things. One of them is, widely the English communities changed over the centuries, and each town/village/country had their own custom and dress.

    However, there is an indirect folk dress in England, which is various across the land.

    Exclamation Re: Germanic Folk Dress

    The lack of Folk dress being worn nowadays is a result of our plastic, globalist society and its adulterating effects. A country which makes no distinction between male and female dress is a sure sign of the decline of that civilisation. I would like to join a Victorian society that gets dressed up in clothing from the Victorian period. I will be moving to Massachusetts in January for college. Does anyone know of any organisations up there?

    It truly has become a plastic world now that businessmen from Britain, Japan and Iraq all wear the same suits.

    Thanks for providing some nice samples from England. Great pictures!

    For those interested - a short background piece on Morris Dancing:

    Morris Dancing - History
    "The origins of Morris dancing have been lost in history, but prevalent opinion is that Morris is based pre-Christian fertility or luck bringing ceremonies. Over time, these 'pagan' dances were assimilated by the church (first the Catholic, then the Protestant) and by the1500s Morris was being performed for Easter, May Day and other parish feasts to help rise funds for the local church.

    However, even with strong church ties. Morris was still danced during spring fall planting to insure a good crop, or on any important times during the planting cycle. Today, Morris is still performed in England on days such as Plough Monday, Easter, and the start of spring. Some of the dances have not changed in over hundred years and because of this long tradition, Morris dancing is considered a living tradition.

    The most common type of Morris performed is known as Cotswold. which is a region located in the western half of England. Cotswold dances typically consist of a series of show (or distinctive) and chorus figures (a figure is a particular maneuver). Show figures are generally very acrobatic and display the strength and still of the side, while chorus figures highlight the precision of the side. An interesting variant of Cotswold dance is the challenge dance. The chorus figure of the challenge dance are the same as other dances, however the distinctive figures are performed by two dancers at the same time, each one challenging the other to deliver the best performance of the figure.

    There are several traditions of Cotswold dances, with each tradition named after the town of its origin. Such as Adderbury, Bampton, Ducklington and the oldest continuous tradition Headington. The difference between the traditions usually is in the style of the distinctive figures. Some use handkerchiefs, others clash sticks. Some tradition are precise, Adderbury for example, while traditions such as Border Morris are wild and unruly."


    Those seeking further information on English "folk" customs would do well to seek out the works of Nigel Pennick - in particular Northern Magic.

    This picture was taken in Tórshavn during a festival for St. Olav's day... I had a wonderful selection of Faroese folk dress, but I cannot find the disc that I have them stored on... Ah well, perhaps another time then!

    Denmark



    Some more Danish folk dress, as captured by painter F.C. Lund:



    "Nature! We are surrounded and embraced by her:
    powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her.

    Without asking, or warning, she snatches us up into her circling dance, and whirls us on until we are tired, and drop from her arms." - Goethe

    I was one of the very few kids having worn folk dressing in my schooltime.
    I did so because my traditional thinking uncle and aunt (from Austria) didn´t have children, they donated me the clothes, my mother never would have bought me anything else than modern clothing...
