Ausseer Traditional Costume: The Elegant Variety Of The Styrian Traditional Costume

The Ausseer traditional costume orientates itself in design and colour range not only with the original farm clothing. Furthermore the numerous aristocratic guests of the imperial household in Vienna have contributed to the fact that the local traditional costume was refined and increased in elegance and wearing comfort. The original Ausseer dirndl dress for the women has a dark green top made of linen, a pink coloured skirt and a lilac apron. Today the Ausseer traditional costume mirrors all colours of the rainbow. Finest, hand printed silk shoulder cloths and aprons catch the light. A straw hat, offering protection from the summer sun completes the Ausseer traditional costume for ladies.

Christoph Raich, one of the few Lederhosen Tailors in the Styrian Salzkammergut chooses in his workshop in Bad Aussee the material for his Lederhosen with great care. After all the Lederhosen shall accompany its wearer throughout a whole lifetime – yes it even grows over time. Considering that, the approx. Euro 1.000, which a future Lederhosen owner should budget for with his Lederhosen, should be seen as an investment, which is well worth it.
