The female armour that comes alive through movement
The costume of Attica is one of the few neo-Hellenic costumes that have survived intact until today. The female core was completely covered with heavy meshes, which during the Ottoman rule were embellished with chains full of coins that served as an ideal money storage medium. Later, when local people learned other ways to keep their money, they replaced coins with rosettes that rendered the costume too heavy to wear. With this weighty adornment women reinforced their mating call that would lead to the desired outcome: producing offsprings.
