Traditional Clothing from Cyprus from http://noctoc-noctoc.blogspot.com/2011_02_01_archive.html#
A silk sash (waistband) from Cyprus. Used in the traditional urban costumes. The centre of Cypriot silk production was to be found in the area of Lapta and Alsançak where the climate was favourable for the mulberry tree. Colours and design are similar to the silk waistbands of the Silifke region (Southern Anatolia).
