Turkey has enjoyed a long and fascinating cultural history. This can be truly appreciated through a look at traditional costumes. This paper doll collection depicts twelve different costumes for both men and women from twelve different areas of Turkey.
Here along with two paper dolls, are authentic reproductions of Turkish costumes in beatuiful detail. Many drawings also include accessories such as ceremonial knives, scarves, headpieces and jewerly. An informative caption and a drawing from the region accompany each costume. Also included is a dowry trunk, traditionally used for the storage of fine clothes and linen, which you can use to store your paper costumes.
Here is an activity everyone can learn from and enjoy, both as a unique visual experience and a way to learn more about Turkish culture and tradition.
