Costumes of the World - Lebanon

These original, hand drawn illustrations are from my Costumes of the World collection and depict aspects of the traditional Lebanese dress for men and women.

 

Clothing traditions in Lebanon are as diverse as the ethnic composition of the country. Over the course of its history, it has been under the rule of the Romans, Persians, Greeks, Arabs, Ottoman Empires, as well most recently, the French. Each of them left a trace in the life and traditions of Lebanon. The woman in this illustration wears a colourful, embroidered skirt and a white veil, held up by a low tarboush (fez). The man wears the traditional sherwal (baggy trousers) and kubran (velvet jacket with gold brocade).
