Traditional Sorbian costume. High fashion with heritage.

Elaborately embroidered head scarves and colourful skirts are the hallmark of the traditional Sorbian tracht, still worn on high days and holidays by women in the Spree Forest. Every colour is symbolic in meaning: unmarried women wear red skirts, married women wear green. Black skirts are worn to church. The different styles of bonnet represent the village the woman comes from. Recently, female designers have taken inspiration from this traditional dress and created their own modern interpretations for both men and women.
