Seller ID CzechDollsPF
The costumes featured in this paper doll book originate from Bohemia, Moravia, and Slovakia. The beginnings of the development of traditional costumes date about two hundred years back. Traditional costumes with specific unique features would give us a lot of information about the people who wore them. For example the region and village they lived in, their social and marital status, and their religion. Costumes worn daily, were usually of a simple pattern and fabric. Costumes for special occasions were decorated with ribbons and intricate embroideries. The latter are featured in our paper doll book.
