Previously, national costumes and folk costumes were important and varied much from region to region. Today we mainly know the Greenlandic national costume and the Faroe Island national costume, which are still used for festive occasions. The costumes are also still being used by folk dancers. Both Royal Copenhagen, Bing & Grondahl and Dahl Jensen porcelain have released several porcelain figurines of people in national costumes and also a few ceramic figurines.
Royal Copenhagen and B&G has primarily published figurines of Danish regional costumes, while Dahl Jensen is known for his stunning porcelain figurines of exotic women in typical costumes from their homeland.
