Austrian Peasant Lace

Austrian peasant

LACE. BY A. S. LE-
VETUS.

Only those who have
travelled in the remote parts of the
Austrian Crown Lands can form an
idea of the richness and variety of
the costumes worn by the peasants,
and how largely lace and embroidery
are used in their adornment. Nor is
this beauty of costume and use of
embroidery and lace confined to the
women, for the men are equally fond
of decorating their clothing with
these embellishments, and in some
places even embroider their own
garments, though they leave the
makingof thelace to feminine fingers.

Each village has its own distinc-
tive costume, and it is easy to tell by
their garments the part from which
the peasants come. Happily, in
many districts the old traditions are
still preserved — for example, in
Slavonia, Moravia, Croatia, Dalmatia,
Bosnia, and some parts of Bohemia,
though among the Northern Czechs
