Jantziaren Zentroa

Located in the historic centre of Errenteria, in a building of the seventeenth century, Jantziaren Zentroa will allow you to travel and know the evolution of clothing, and at the same time discover the history of fashion and the style of dressing in Euskal Herria and in Europe.

Permanent exhibition

This is a proposal to learn about the history of fashion through 38 costumes. On this occasion we focus on the 1920s, Jantziaren Zentroa takes us to a night party to the rhythm of the Charleston.

As we hear the sounds of jazz on the first floor we enter a night party after the First World War. 18 costumes, 17 of them women's dresses and one men's costume. It was the moment when women liberated their bodies, leaving behind the corsets and frames in which they could neither breathe nor move. We will enter the night and the party, the costumes sparkle as the spotlights illuminate the thousands of precious stones and pearls sewn into them. Feathers, hats, necklaces, period hairstyles, mannequins dressed with attention to detail.

Most of the dresses come from the USA and France, but there are also some from the Basque Country, specifically from San Sebastian and Maule.

On the second floor of Kapitain-etxea, an exhibition of 20 costumes resumes the fashion between the 18th century and the 1970s. Highlights include a wedding dress from Leitza (Navarre) from 1911, an evening dress from Baiona from the 1920s, and two outfits from Maule from the 1950s and 1970s. All these costumes from the Basque Country are pieces donated to the Jantziaren Zentroa, either by particulars or families.

The fashion section features dresses by four great haute couture designers: Charles Frederick Worth, Paul Poiret, Jeanne Pakin and Cristóbal Balenciaga.
