Nabeul Open Front Gown

This piece is a twist on a classic Tunisian garment, the barnous from the city of Nabeul, which is a hooded full-length robe worn on special occasions, particularly by brides. The same material, hand-woven hayek, and embroidery style, criss-cross tell pattern, are used in this piece to create a more wearable open-front piece. Hayek and tell are tell-tale [ ;P ] traditions from Nabeul in this particular style - although tell is also used in traditional styles from other cities - easily recognized by all Tunisians as the specialty of that city.

Note: This piece is a one-size, loose garment which can be worn as-is or with a belt.

Because of the quality and delicacy of the hand-woven wool fabric (hayek), we recommend dry cleaning or hand-washing this piece to preserve its integrity and longevity. We sourced this fabric from a traditional hand-weaver in Qairouan.
