Wedding clogs substitute proposal

  • Post category:blog

weddingclogs|For 21 years I’ve lived near Volendam & Marken where one craftsman still knows how to carve traditional wedding clogs. The story goes that in winter, a fisherman would cut these intricate pieces of wood – with hearts and Turkish knots for love and eternity – for his bride to be. In spring, before fishing, the man would give his self-made pair – instead of a spoken proposal – to the girl he wants to marry. A week later, arriving at the harbor, his eyes would be focused on her feet. If she wore the clogs, they were engaged. Price ± €110 Clogs Ed Geuze
