While modern Swedish people dress like most of the Western world, there are events that call for Swedish national folk dress and this includes an apron, head covering, neck scarf and waist bag. The colors represent the colors of the Swedish flag.
The apron part of the outfit is the primary focal point and designers use wool, cotton, silk or crepe to make it.
