I know that the most interest goes towards textiles from the East but I want to share this small treasure with you all which I purchased during my last trip to Portugal (August this year). Ariosa near Viana do Castelo is the home town for this costume for a little girl. The Minho on the Costa Verde has the most colourful costumes from all Portugal.
I found it in a shop in Porto which was called "Ajudanos ajudar!" The costume dates from the beginning of the 20th century. The embroidery is wonderful, even the leather shoes are hand embroidered.
I couldn't resist buying the second costume for a young women. Probably is it made by the same person and kept carefully over the years. During our visit we also visit a festival in Viana do Castelo where these (new!) costumes were worn.
