Antique 1900's Palestinian Tatreez Dress

Antique 1900's Palestinian Tatreez Dress


“Tatreez” is an ancient Arabic embroidery, usually taught to girls beginning at a very young age. Each motif and colorway tells a story, meaning each Tatreez dress is one of a kind!

♥ Circa: 1900’s
♥ Label: None, handmade
♥ Color: Black, red, yellow
♥ Material: Polished cotton
♥ Condition: Very good vintage condition. Embroidery is pretty much in perfect condition. Some wear to underarms. Sleeves have some broken stitching (no seams are broken and there are no holes, they just might have had a bit more of a gather at one point). Some pricks to the black fabric. All of these flaws are minor and hard to find, the garment presents beautifully.
