Farmer clothes

Posted on February 24, 2011


At the National Folk Museum, I found a good collection of farmer fashion.  The picture to the left is a woven rain coat.

Ramie and hemp fabrics were usually used during summer because they absorbed sweat and allowed for breathing.  Often, people dyed the fabrics beautiful colors with natural pigments from plants.
