Palestinian costumes
A Ramallah woman in traditional Palestinian attire, including an embroidered dowry headdress (khirqah), ca. 1898–1914. Until the 1940s, traditional Palestinian costumes reflected a woman's socioeconomic status, marital status, and the town or district of origin, and a knowledgeable observer could glean such information from the fabric, colours, cut, and embroidery motifs (or lack thereof) in a given woman's apparel.Photo credit: American Colony, Jerusalem
