Women of Spakenburg

To answer the question of Chookey: Every year less women wear traditional clothes. A group of probably 40-50 women wear this costume daily. So long time they feared the costumes would be no longer part of the streets of Spakenburg. But there is much more interest now from younger generations. Not to wear it daily but to make it and wear it on special days like the Fishing Day. The Historical Club is giving very regular courses, and they're well visited.

Interesting that there seem to even be some younger woman with the special clothes. Great!
