The “Hilar Fino” exhibition at El Fondeadero in Puerto del Carmen

“Hilar fino” (“Fine Spinning”), the travelling exhibition of traditional Lanzarote costume, consists of ten pairs of mannequins, each dressed in typical clothes from the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

“Hilar fino” is the result of research undertaken by the folklore associations Malpaís de la Corona and Coros y Danzas de Arrecife, and is composed of male and female outfits among which can be seen dresses, daily wear, work wear and festive costumes. Every item has been painstakingly reproduced from original garments owned by several families on the island.

The clothes show the most important variations of the time, from the everyday clothes used in work in the fields, fishing or for daily use, to more distinguished costumes, which were worn on special occasions such as celebrations, parties or religious events.

The exhibition ‘Hilar fino’ can be seen at El Fondeadero in Puerto del Carmen, until August 7th.
