Folklore can be considered the subconscious picture of oneself; a way in which people share an identity and congregate with a strong sense of belonging. They belong to the region, to the landscape, to the history and its culture, but most of all they belong to each other. In each village of each valley the ingredients are the same, yet the execution differs and adds another local layer of sacred expression. Folklore keeps reinventing itself and new generations establish their multiple identities. Clothes are craft - minded cultural carriers of intricate woven textiles, sumptuous laces and openwork, festive ribbons and fringes, beading and embroideries. The study of the global span of folkloric fashions introduces new key garment shapes and teaches us a very important notion: not one folklore is unique and not one expression is singular; and that these symbols can also be seen as visual maps connecting the human condition.
