 The Hardangerbunad is one of the most popular folk costumes in Norway and has been used as Norway's national costume since around 1900. The Hardangerbunad developed from the traditional clothing worn in the area with its roots going back to the 1600s. The costume is now used for festive occasions such as christenings, weddings, parties and on the National Day 17 May. The costume is considered a dress for formal occasions and it is still common for girls to receive a complete outfi t for their confi rmation day. A white embroidered apron is often worn as part of the costume with the belt and upper part embroidered with beads. The decoration used is highly varied and it used to be popular to have different upper parts to choose from. There is an exhibition of Hardangerbunad costumes at the Hardanger Folk Museum along with other traditional clothing from the area.
