The Piano Bar on the Street Called Straight (Bab Sharki eastern gate of Damascus) had panels woven like this coat hanging form mosaic cornices over the windows. The new weaving although nice is not in the league of the coat shown here. Aida Dalati Syrian hand woven coat c. 1900
Giornea (the surcoat like thing). It's interesting to see outfits that attempt to slim and obscure the figure, when fashion today puts such an emphasis on shaping the female form.
