Traditional Costumes of Armenian Women
This website is dedicated to promoting the Armenian culture, heritage and history.
In the same way that History shapes the present, our past shapes our identites.
Because Armenian clothes and costumes form such an essential part of our cultural tradition,
the best way to represent the preservation of Armenian self-identity is through the costumes of Armenian women.
Traditional costumes in Armenia are considered a national art. This kind of art has been passed on from generation to generation,
and has kept not only tradition, but also spirit, culture, and originality of the nation.
Multiple factors have shaped the Armenian woman's attire: regional traditions, historical influences,
family methods of dressmaking, as well a her own personal esthetic taste. The Armenian woman and her attire were one and indivisible.
Her clothing was the repository of the crafts, values and tastes expressed in her society.
