Tanagra Costume – Traditional Costume
Athens 2004 Olympic Games Pin
Every Greek costume or better every Greek local costume is a set of clothing, featuring a group of people living in the Greek area. It works like any clothing: dresses and decorates the body, and presents the appearance that he wants to give the one who wears it that time to third parties, providing the self confidence and comfort. Within the conservative and strict society of the villages and the small towns, the certainty and comfort are achieved with uniformity that offers a uniform. The suit is based on tradition and conservatism and is radically different from fashion based on change. The conservatism in costume creates prohibitive taboos,and taboos that give magical qualities in some of the sections. The clothing of a conservative group formed at times by the influence of another stronger human team. But everything is relied on local materials and trade.
