Traditional Kurdish costumes from the Hakkâri and Şirnak region. The man’s costume is authentic (made in Şirnak in the 1960s), as are the accessories. The female costume is an accurate copy of the clothing in Yüksekova in the late 1980s; it was made (in the Kavak workshop) in 1990. Judging from the wedding video’s on the internet, the fashion in Yüksekova has shifted to lighter and workshop-made costumes today. (Kavak Folklor Ekibi & Costume Collection-Antwerpen/Belgium).
