This antique dress came from an elderly couple who lived in Iran and Turkey in the 1950s/1960s. He was a diplomat and she spent her days in the bazaars buying rugs and flat-weaves. She bought the dress near Ankara and it is understood they were made on the Black Sea coast area. They are quite rare now.
