Fashion and Textile Tours in Istanbul


Fashion and Textile Tours in Istanbul

The earliest sources found in the history of Turkish clothing date back to the miniatures and wall pictures uncovered in Central Asia. As the horse was the common and inevitable form of transport in the daily routine, women's and men's wear resembled each other (unisex). Leather and felt materials had priority due to natural and social conditions. In addition to these materials; shipskin, fur and woolen materials were major constituents in clothes of that period. Sources indicate that central Asian Turks used to wear leather boots, mintan shirt, a short caftan used with a belt and a kind of riding trousers loose at the top narrowing downwards suitable for horse riding.

Emigration from Asia to Anatolia caused many cultures to integrate. Clothes of the Seljuks were produced from materials such as wool, felt, camel's hair, fur, cotton and silk. The varied climate conditions in Anatolia required clothes to be used in all conditions. Cold climate areas brought in the use of fur linings. The principal material was composed of works of the highly developed art of weaving.
