National costumes in Finnish stamps / Trajes nacionales en sellos finlandeses / Costumes nationaux en timbres finlandais / Trajes nacionais em selos finlandeses

In English:

National costumes in Finnish stamps

My wife organized her stamp collection and she showed to me some National costumes in stamps. I was very excited about them because they represent a “disappearing” folklore. Yet today these can be seen on some occasions but very seldom. In some towns there are courses in adult education collages. National costumes are expensive because they include so many clothes, like: shirt, skirt, vest, apron, hat, scarf, socks, and shoes. I did find from a Finnish page in which there are listed 153 different parts in our National costumes. There are 176 different National Costumes in Finland.

En español:

Trajes nacionales en sellos finlandeses

Mi esposa organizó su colección de estampillas y ella me mostró algunos trajes nacionales en sellos. Yo estaba muy emocionado acerca de ellos porque representan una folclore “desaparecienda”. Sin embargo, hoy en día esto puede ser visto en algunos ocasiones festivas s, pero muy pocas veces. En algunas ciudades hay cursos en escuelas populares para adultos. Trajes nacionales son caros porque incluyen tanta ropa, como: camisa, falda, chaleco, delantal, gorro, bufanda, calcetines y zapatos. Me encontré una página finlandesa en que se enumeran 153 diferentes partes de nuestros trajes nacionales. Hay 176 diferentes trajes nacionales de Finlandia.

Costumes nationaux en timbres finlandais

Ma femme a organisé sa collection de timbres et elle me l’a montré des costumes nationaux de timbres. J’étais très excité à leur sujet parce qu’ils représentent une “disparaissente” folklore. Pourtant, aujourd’hui, ceux-ci peuvent être observés sur certaines occasions festives, mais très rarement. Dans certaines villes il y a des cours dans les écoles populaires pour les adultes pour les faire. Les costumes nationaux sont chers parce qu’il y a tant de vêtements, comme: chemise, jupe, veste, tablier, chapeau, écharpe, chaussettes, et des chaussures. J’ai trouvé une page Finlandaise dans laquelle sont énumérés 153 différentes parties de nos costumes nationaux. Il y a 176 différents costumes nationaux en Finlande.

Em Português:

Trajes nacionais em selos finlandeses

Minha esposa organizou sua coleção de selos e me mostrou alguns trajes nacionais em selos. Fiquei muito animado com eles porque eles representam um folclore “desaparecendo”. Ainda hoje estes podem ser vistos em algumas ocasiões, mas muito raramente. Em algumas cidades existem cursos de colagens para educação de adultos onde fazê-los. Os trajes nacionais são caros porque incluem muitas roupas, como: camisa, saia, colete, avental, chapéu, cachecol, meias e sapatos. Eu encontrei de uma página finlandesa na qual estão listadas 153 partes diferentes em nossos trajes nacionais. Existem 176 diferentes trajes nacionais na Finlândia.

    • Hello Keith.

      Thank You. Your words are wise. Nowadays it is pity that sending letters and cards are decreasing which means that such collections like this do not will be published any more.

  2. Your wife has a fine collection of stamps. I’ve read the posts that you linked below as well. The costumes are amazing and very detailed. Thank you for sharing such great pictures.

      Thank You reading also my links. We Finns have some “odd” habits, but they are lovely because they keep up our traditions. I am glad that You loved my posts.

      Have a good day.

  3. How beautiful! I had never seen such Finnish costumes before. I don’t recall seeing any women wearing national costumes while I lived in Finland for a few years.. Here in Poland it’s not common either, but in the mountains I’ve seen old women wearing it. The costumes are so colorful and beautiful. Great collection!

    • Hello Pooja.

      Thank You. My wife’s stamp collection is old. I had also when being young, but one summer light burnt our house – I lost all my memories. National costumes are shown generally once in summer – on “airing national dresses day”.

      Have a wonderful day!

    • Oi Claudia.

      Sim, é uma vergonha, mas o nosso mundo está mudando rapidamente e antigas tradições são jogadas fora pelas gerações jovens. Suspiro!

      Tenha uma ótima semana.

  5. The stamps are beautiful as are the National dress costumes Matti. I hope that they continue to be worn, despite the expense specially to celebrate National Day. I’m a member of Postcrossing whereby people send postcards to people around the world and I always try to affix a commemorative stamp on the card as they look so much nicer than the standard ones. Have you heard of Postcrossing Matti? It is very popular in Finland and I have received numerous cards from different parts of the country.

      Thank You commenting. I am glad that You loved this post and its photos. I know Postcrossing, because I participated in it about ten – twelve years ago. One day I started blogging and ended it slowly.

      Have a wonderful day!

  7. When I was young I used to collect stamps. I loved the different colours and culture of each individual country. 🙂

    • Hello Lorelle.

      Thank You. Very nice to read that You also collected stamps. When I was young I collected them, but one day Flash burnt our house and I lost everything, which I had. Only memories stay in my mind.

      Have a good day!

  8. Hello. Were your wife collected stamps? I also had a hobby about collecting stamps when I was young. I was surprised to hear that there are 176 ethnic costumes in Finland. Is Finland a multi-ethnic country?

    • Hello Wakasahs15th.

      She collected them during many years. Not so actively, but when she got nice stamps, she kept them. These are not ethnic, but different styles from different areas of Finland. Thank You.

  9. Hello (^ ^)
    A stamp of ethnic costumes seems to see the history of each ethnic group and it is wonderful.

  10. I like the way the stamps give us an insight into the costumes of the Finnish people. Nice arrangement!

    Comment by Peter Klopp — August 14, 2018 @ 15:46 | Reply

    • Hello Peter.

      Thank you for Your kind words. When we send for example Christmas cards for friend, we try to find interesting stamps for them. Nowadays the young generation use Internet or phones for greetings, but it means that no long lasting memory. I appreciate people who give big effort to buy and select a beautiful post card, buy beautiful stamps, write hand-written message on it and then send it. This shows that a person really cares of another person. In Finland, we generally send post cards at Christmas, in Easter and when congratulating somebody.

      Have a good day!

  16. Very interesting as these traditional costumes are very different as far as colours, cut/style, head coverings etc. are concerned. I enjoyed it very much to compare the costumes and to search for my favourite one.^^ And you say there are totally 176 different traditional Finnish costumes? Wow!

    Thanks for photographing and showing Anja’s stamp collection!
    Warm regards – Michèle

      Thank You praising these costumes and the same time my wife’s collection and my photos. The amount is indeed big and it would be lovely to see all of them. To see many is only on the “airing days of national costumes”.

      All the best to You and Yours,

  23. Amazing post and so important commemorate these disappearing national costumes. I have been collecting stamps in a general world collection, but the last 10 years I have not been as active with being very busy with life. I know it will be there when I get more time to pick it up again. Finland has such beautiful circular date hand stamps for their cancellations. Thank you for sharing this. 🙂
