Šis ir gan reprezentabls izdevums, kurā atainots visu 19 etnogrāfisko novadu tautas tērpu krāšņums, gan arī praktiska rokasgrāmata. In this book, author Maruta Grasmane has compiled materials about the treasure that has been collected in her folk costume shop "Sena Klets" and has utilized her experience in needlework and teaching. This appears to be the best publication on the subject of Latvian folk costumes ever published. Publishing of this book has been financially supported by Latvijas Kulturkapitala Fonds (Latvia`s Foundation for Culture), an organization which has been supporting excellent projects related to preserving Latvia`s heritage and culture. The author is considered one of the leading experts of Latvian folk costumes and she seems to be aware of it - her pompous attitude is known in the industry and it can often be observed by visiting her shop in Latviesu Biedriba building in downton Riga. Readers who do not necessarily have a command of Latvian, but are interested in Latvian folk costumes should find this book useful, especially the high quality pictures showing folk costumes of each region.
An online catalog of Latvian folk costumes is being built by BalticShop.com, for details contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
