A traditional festive costume from the Niğde province. Late 19th / early 20th century. In the upper left picture: the brown silk ensemble (trousers and shirt), without the ‘cepken’ (outer vest); the meagre decoration of the shirt indicates that a long-sleeved jacket was to be worn over it. All accessories (headgear, necklace, belt buckle, embroidered sash) are from the same period (ca. 1900). (Kavak Costume Collection - Antwerpen/Belgium).
