More and more people are insuring their bunads (Norwegian national costumes). Tryg estimates that 80,000 Norwegian bunads have been insured for NOK 3.2 billion.

“Tryg has now passed over 12,000 bunad insurances, and given the market share and figures others in the industry have gone out with, I estimate that as of today, there are around 80,000 people with bunad insurance in Norway,” communications consultant Torbjørn Brandeggen told news bureau NTB.

In 2016, If estimated that 57,000 bunads were insured for NOK 2.2 billion.

“We see that more and more people are getting bunad insurance, especially in connection with confirmations and May 17,” Brandeggen said.

It is estimated that there are over 2.5 million bunads in Norwegian homes. According to Tryg, around 300 bunads disappear annually, worth around NOK 7 million.
