Six vintage postcards showing the traditional costume of Spakenburg (a fishing village at Lake IJsselmeer, which used to be the Zuiderzee Sea before 1930) in the province of Utrecht in The Netherlands. The oldest card is from 1912 (the drawing), the black and white card is from the fifties, and the four other cards are from the seventies and eighties (5 cards were actually sent).
Spakenburg is one of the few places left in the Netherlands where some women still wear local traditional clothes. The kraplap or bodice of the Spakenburg woman is the most striking part of her costume; it's made of a handpainted cotton and fully stiffened, which makes it look like a giant collar; the red checkered vertical stripe in the middle, is the shawl folded into a strip only in such a way that the kraplap is fully visible.

All cards come from my own traditional costume collection; because of space shortage, I sell parts of it here on Etsy.

Payment can be done by Paypal and within the EU also by direct bank transfer. Details on request.
