vintage-clothing avaTunisian vintage clothing is precious, not only because of all those gold (embroidery with golden threads, gold embellishments, etc.) but because of its historical value as well. In museums and private collections, we can find unique and unimaginable samples of the traditional outfit of Tunisia. They show us the wealth of Tunisian people and the skillfulness of local craftsmen. Here you are several pieces of vintage women's costumes. Some of them are familiar to our readers, and others may be a surprise.

The photos were provided by the organization “ALLA Business Prestige” and its owner Mr. Khaled Dridi
