Owner is moving and anxious to sell!

A traditional Palestinian Arab dress, dating from about 1950-60. The basic fabric is black heavy cotton, and the dress is embroidered with multicolored flowers. The bust measurement is 40" and the length from shoulder is 52". It is an A-line shape.

These dresses were worn in the Middle East through the middle of the last century, and still are worn in some smaller communities. Palestinian clothing has its origins in ancient Middle Eastern dress, and was particularly know for the rich and varied embroidery which reflected the wearer's wealth and status.

This dress would have been the every-day wear of an average village woman. The embroidery sections are in a traditional pattern. The flowers are embroidered by "guided machine", and every dress of this style was slightly different. Nearly all Palestinian dresses had a black or dark background.

The dress is used, but in overall good vintage condition. It does show wear and a bit of fading of the black, as the dress is handmade and the black dye was probably not commercial grade. The dress is very wearable, but probably more suited for display rather than everyday wear.
