Basque Clothing

There are approximately 400 different Basque dances.  Many of these dances have their own distinctive costumes.   Sometimes the costume is dictated by the dance. In other cases the everyday traditional dress of that particular region is worn. 

Click on the small images below to explore Basque dance by costume.  All of the ones you see here are worn by Zenbat Gara Euskal Dantzari Taldea for their performances and were handmade by the dancers themselves.
