    The Hardanger bunad is the most famous of all the Norwegian folk costumes. In the romantic era of the last part of the 19th century, it became the national costume, and it was copied all over the country, although usually simplified. The Hardanger bunad has never been out of use. Even the local districts had their local design specific to them. There is also a difference of a married woman and a young girls bunad. The woman wear a headdress and a silver belt, and they look more dressed up than the young girls. The Hardanger women also traditionally had a winter bunad. is the most famous of all the Norwegian folk costumes.
