Every nation has got certain colors and ornaments that make up the visual language of its people.
Even though the territory of Estonia is small, the regional specifics are noticeable. As different regions have been spoken different dialects, regional peculiarities reflect the taste of people and also give information about the wearer's. So we can get information about his or her origin and marital status. Understanding and interpreting the meaning of colors and patterns opens up a new perspective to learn on Estonian culture and history.
During the course, knowledge and a systematic overview of the regional peculiarities of colors and patterns in Estonia will be obtained. Conversations and worksheets help to acquire knowledge and learn something new. A systematic review facilitates orientation in the vast diversity of Estonian national costumes.
