Trace Traje de luces, the traditional clothing of the bullfighters here in Valencia, Spain.

The thread is sometimes made of gold or is coated in gold to give the elegant look to the suit.

Trace de Luce - "Suit of Lights" - the resplendent traditional attire of top bullfighters in Spain.

Before a Spanish torero enters an arena he is adorned in a traditional traje de luces (suit of lights). This detailed costume is a key element of bullfighting and the best suits are still made as they were in the early 20th century—by hand and without the use of machines.
