Folk Dress and Weaving in CYprus
I hope this email finds you in good health. My name is Aisyah and I am currently studying Social Anthropology in the University of Kent in England. For my dissertation I am doing a paper on the traditional clothes of Cyprus and how they are made.
I love the artistry and the culture behind it and I am writing about what the traditional clothes mean to Cypriots. In order to do this, it is vital that I find a place that specialises in making the traditional clothes and protects the traditional ways of making them such as weaving. I am writing to ask if such a place exists? This is so that I can further my research by interviewing Cypriots, especially the makers of the clothes to ask the role of the traditional clothes in their lives. From this research I hope to do a short visual documentary on folk dress. I hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
