Description: Lovely book about traditional folk costumes from Estonia. This volume looks at the traditional overcoats worn with regional folk costumes throughout the country. The pikk-kuub, or long-coat, was the most important element of cold-weather clothing in Estonia and this book looks at the many varieties of coats worn in both winter and on cooler summer days. The coats are examined with respect to cut, ornamentation and region.
