The basis for creating Europe’s oldest traditional Tracht clothing, the ‘Juppe,’ is a protracted process that creates a stiff, glistening material with 100s of wrinkles. This style of dress is made according to ancient practices and is hemmed on 100-year-old sewing machines. In addition, the Juppenwerkstatt also provides training on how to create Tracht clothing while acting as an informational and contact point for prospective wearers of Juppe dresses. The centre features its very own Tracht clothing museum in addition to attracting architecture-lovers from around the world. To ensure that guests get a better idea of just how much work goes into creating Tracht dresses, a professional seamstress, embroiderer, button or hat maker will act as a guide.
