    Edited by Gillian Vogelsang-Eastwood

    Dressed with Distinction: Garments from Ottoman Syria offers a window onto the history of textile production in the Middle East during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The elaborate garments documented here originated in western Syria and were worn until the fall of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War I when political and social changes led to the dominance of Western-style commercially manufactured attire. Until then, for hundreds of years, skilled artists in Syrian cities produced intricately woven textiles and garments for the royal courts, worldly merchants, and elite Bedouin families.

    In addition to articulating the social and seasonal contexts in which the garments were worn, this publication examines the styles of 28 examples of dress once worn by women, men, and children in Ottoman Syria. These garments include cloaks (abaya), head-coverings (hatta), women’s body coverings (çarşaf), and jackets (qumbas).

    Dressed with Distinction: Garments from Ottoman Syria features the collection of David and Elizabeth Reisbord, gifts and promised gifts to the Fowler Museum at ucla.
