Folk Costume!
Sweden is known for the extroardinary variety in
local folk costume, or "dräkt".  
On the tour you will see many people wearing
these traditional dräkter at various events.   
You will visit stores where the materials,
accessories, and patterns for them are
available.   You can ask makers about the
details of the materials, stitching, etc., if you are
interested in sewing.
There may even be an opportunity to buy a new
or used costume already made.
