Estonia: Stamps on Folk Costumes

\"\"Estonia  released 2 stamps on 14th April 2011 on Folk Costumes.Clothes of more or less the same type as elsewhere in North Estonia were worn in Harju County, although wide differences can be found particularly in the colours and decorations of women’s dress. From Jõelähtme near Tallinn a girl and a woman from the first half or the middle of the 19th century have been reproduced on the stamp. The girl’s headgear is a so-called eared wreath and a wide red band decorates her green-striped skirt.The Rapla woman on the other stamp also wears a hat.
