This collection of costumes (some of which date back as far as the 1850s) provides a visual representation of Greece’s traditional cultural legacy, as reflected both in everyday village life, and in age-old communal events such as weddings, festivals, and saints’ days.

Myriad details in each costume also offer valuable insights into materials and techniques used in various times and places, as well as the influence of migrations, livelihoods, and historical events.

The presentation will focus primarily on original garments (including several very rare pieces), along with some authentic reproductions.
