Dalarna has over forty different parish-specific costumes. Some of the costumes span four hundred years of clothing and fashion development, which in turn has created a whole wardrobe of clothes for different festivals and seasonal uses. Other costumes have been created during the 1900th century and have been used as costumes on special occasions. The costumes of the Dalars have always fascinated and been an expression of identity, pride, community and, not least, craftsmanship.

In November's Things that speak, knitted garments will be in focus. In the museum's collections there is a large collection of knitted garments such as sweaters, mittens and socks. Most of the items are in the technique we call double-ended knitting. Only women have knitted and they always knitted with two threads, i.e. double-ended knitting. Hence, there was no special name for the technique and it was used regardless of whether summer or winter garments were to be knitted. The most common material in all double-knitted garments was homespun wool yarn, but it also occurs in cotton and linen.

Things that speak: Vallkullan's equipment

"With the bag around the neck" - stories about the equipment of the dike hill

There are countless paintings and notes that show and describe the equipment of the mounds. Everything from clothing to tools and handicrafts testify to the work and role of the herdsmen in various farming communities throughout history. In this talk, music antiquarian Jennie Tiderman-Österberg tells about the day-to-day life of the dykes on the shack, both through work and rest. What clothes were used? What tools were used in dairy farming, washing and herding? The objects help us answer these questions.

CURRENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS.

Date: June 17-September 30

Dressed in art

When 1800th-century artists went to Dalarna to depict the picturesque valley people, the parish costume was in focus. There were national romantic idealizations but also cool women who smoke pipes. During the 1900th century, both Salvation Army soldiers and the occasional physiotherapist were depicted in parish garb.

Jewish traces in the history of Dalarna

This is the first proper study carried out on the historical presence of the Jewish minority in Dalarna. And it offers interesting content. When the study was initiated through a discussion between Region Dalarna's Culture and Education Administration and Dalarna's museum about one of the national minorities' presence in the region, it was clear that it was an opportunity to go through and strengthen a state of knowledge about part of Dalarna's history that has been quite lean. For a cultural history museum, it is part of society's mission to explore the past and convey to the outside world what is found. The connections between yesterday, today and tomorrow are part of everyday life, as well as the fact that knowledge and learning have an obvious place in our community.
