Alsatian costume

Le costume alsacien traditionnel - Alsaciennes en costume

Did you know ? In the old days, there were nearly as many costumes as there were villages…

If there is a costume that symbolises a region of France, it is well and truly the Alsatian costume! But behind the black headdress and red skirt most often seen as an emblem of Alsace, there is actually a whole range of other outfits. The broad variety of rural costumes in the 19th and early 20th century reflects a blend of strict German fashion and French style. The diversity of shapes and colours demonstrates the creative vitality of countryside communities in bygone days.

This vitality lives on today in a broad spectrum of events and through folk groups (group D’Kochloeffel from Souffelweyersheim, Groupe d’Art Populaire de Berstett) who are enthusiastically rediscovering and striving to reproduce the costumes. You can also see costumes in the rich museum collections, such as the Alsatian Museum in Strasbourg.
