Also the South Tyrolean Oltradige area (Überetsch) has its own costume.
The traditional costumes play an important role in South Tyrol on holidays and at family festivities. The various associations wear the costumes at each of their performances in public and thus preserve a piece of tradition in the villages and towns of South Tyrol.
The woman’s costume of the Oltradige area consists of a long, black, pleated skirt, over it a cotton apron and a richly decorated pink/green top. Underneath they wear a white exclusive lace blouse. In winter the women also wear a black traditional jacket, called “Tschoapele”.
The men usually wear the historical costume. It consists of a white shirt, over it a red waistcoat, green braces, leather shorts, white knee socks and black shoes. The heart of the traditional costume is the wide belt around the waist, which is decorated with feather quill embroidery.
Usually also the place and the year of foundation of the association can be seen on the belt.
