Lebanese traditional dress and Dabke. Dabke is a modern Levantine Arab folk circle dance of possible Canaanite or Phoenician origin. It is a dance from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Palestine, and is performed at weddings and on joyous occasions.
This is a historically authentic traditional Lebanese dress with the famous Middle Eastern Tantour headdress which was extremely en vogue in the 18th and the 19th centuries in Lebanon. This gown is a part of the wardrobe of the Lebanese high society and nobility. It is characterized by an ankle length Ghambaz made out of silk brocade with delicate silver threads. The full-length underpants are pure silk and stylized as Turkish pantaloons.
