I am trying to find out more information about the Original Hardanger thsi
refers to:
"
>   In Weldon's Encyclopedia of Nedlework the hardanger introduction says,
> "Modern Hardanger is of Norwegian origin, deriving its name from the city

    Does anyone is this group have any idea about the Persian variety of
Hardanger or where I could look for details?
Thanks
