Old type bridal costume of Kymi, Evia (Euboea)

18th century

© Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation Collection, Nafplion

This bridal costume is a real rarity. Typologically it belongs among the island costumes of the Greek world, as these took shape in the eighteenth century.

 The dress is made of pure silk brocade imported from Western Europe, with a hem of a different brocade. The brocaded design of the hem is the same as that of the waistcoat but the material is of poorer quality, which reveals the existence of two kinds of material with the same woven design.
