Spain: Catalan folk costume

We received unique postcard from Spain, young couple in traditional Catalan folk costume. Postcard itself is usual postcard, but dress (pubbila) is made of real and very fine cloth. A pubilla in ancestral Catalan tradition was the female that would inherit the whole rural estate in the absence of a brother. Boy wears male version of inheritance clothing - d'Hereu.

Postcard arrived in cover with stamp Europa CEPT 2017 Castle Manzanares el Real, Madrid, but cover is not cancelled.

Thank you Tajana & Kristijan!
