This bridal/festive costume from Argyrokastro/Gjirokastër (southern Albania) with minor variations in the headdress, was worn by both Greek and Muslim women alike. It consists of a long white chemise, short waistcoat, long black overcoat embroidered in gold, and a gold belt and buckle. The breast is covered by the armatha, a chain ornament with gold-plated coins, which was worn for the wedding and then became a family heirloom. The head is covered with a silk gold embroidered headscarf.
