Traditional festive costume of the Greek-Orthodox inhabitants from the Pontos region (Black Sea coast and hinterland). Late-Ottoman era, urban style, early 20th century. They were expelled from Turkey in 1923, in exchange for Muslim populations from Greece. At this occasion Turkey lost a lot of cultural and economic potential, and the expelled lost their homeland.
