Busserull by Kari-Mette Avtjern
Busserull is the Norwegian name on a short shirt worn as a jacket. Characteristic of the busserull is that they, like old shirts, consist of only square and rectangular pieces of fabric. In the last 130-180 years the Norwegian busserull have been made of one-coloured, checked or striped fabric of wool or cotton.
On Hadeland we like to think about the busserull as a typical Hadeland garment. But the busserull have traditions in several European countries. French workers in the early 1800s wore trousers and blouses (busserull). During the French revolutions in 1830 and 1848 the busserull was used as a political symbol on the solidarity between workers and peasants.
In Norway and Sweden a garment similar to the busserull is known back to the Middle Ages. In the second half of the 1800s the ready-made clothing industry started to produce busserull. New colours, fabrics and details in the design occurred. In the same period the blue-striped busserull made of cotton came into common use on Hadeland. This is the same type of busserull used and produced on Hadeland today.
The busserull have first and foremost been used by farmers, lumberjacks and building workers as a working- and everyday cloth. The busserull was thought of as a loose and comfortable garment. The busserull have not traditionally been used by women. If the busserull were new with no patches or holes it was called “holiday-busserull” and used on Sundays at home. The busserull were not used in church. The busserull material has been available in general stores and woven at home.
The traditional busserull has neck band with one button and buttonhole. In the front from the neck to the chest there is a split with a couple of buttons. Until the 1960s another design were used. This had a neck band and buttons all the way down in the front and a band in the waist. This was often used by elderly men who had trouble to pull the busserull over the head.
