Lederhosen Gained Popularity in the Rococo Period

Although almost everyone knows that Lederhosen were first worn in Europe and particularly Bavaria, very few people know exactly when they gained popularity. Historically, Lederhosen were worn by the peasant class of Bavaria but during the Rococo period, the affluent decided to emulate the lifestyle of the peasants and started wearing the German Lederhosen as well. It didn’t hurt either that the Lederhosen were comfortable to wear and easy to move around in. However, the Lederhosen of the nobles were made of much finer quality of leather as compared to their lower class counterparts.

Embroidery on Lederhosen Signifies Region

There are plenty of aspects that set Lederhosen apart, yet the embroidery may be the most notable. Although it wasn’t always fashionable, but embroidered Lederhosen soon caught on and became a prevailing trend. But there’s more to the embroidery than meets the eye because each pattern and design of embroidery on the men’s Lederhosen signifies a particular region or a location from where the person wearing it belongs.

Bavarian Lederhosen almost became extinct

Looking at the popularity of the Lederhosen in modern times, it may be hard to imagine a time when they almost went extinct. But that’s exactly what happened towards the end of the 19th century. If it wasn’t for the Bavarian teacher, Josef Vogl, the Lederhosen may well have disappeared forever but he made a society that ensured the Lederhosen persevered. A big reason why the Lederhosen fell out of popularity was because the Catholic Church did not take a liking to them, calling them ‘immoral’ at one stage. Fortunately, today Lederhosen are worn far and wide and accepted by people of all ethnic backgrounds simply because of their unique nature and look.
