Antique Ottoman Aleppo saf design silk dress

Antique Ottoman Aleppo silk skirt and shawl or hamam dress


Kathi modelling an Ottoman combined silk skirt and shawl (or hamam Turkish bath dress) found during our September trip to Anatolia. Made from two large strong silk panels woven in Aleppo, Syria, each with saf designs, one around the head end of the shawl and the other at the lower edge of the skirt, which has a purple and white cotton rope drawstring. In exceptional condition as can be seen in the photos. See more photos on www.kilim.ie or www.tribal-art.org and contact me HERE for further information

Kathi’s beautiful shoes were made in Antalya by Hasan Yetkil, where he has revived the craft of traditional hand made Turkish shoes. Look out for his new English website coming soon www.osmanlicarik.com
