The festive/ceremonial costume of a Kurdish townswoman from Harput. Late-Ottoman, ca. 1870. The impressive headgear (called 'hotoz') implies many scarves (some of light colours, some dark), which are braided by each other on top of a small cap. A double chain with dangles is fixed to the 'hotoz' by means of two golden head pins. Picture from ‘Les Costumes Populaires de la Turquie’- Osman Hamdi Bey, 1873. (Erfgoedbibliotheek, Antwerpen).
