Libyan Dress Part 2

At the heart of Tripoli’s centre is what is known as Souk Al-Hreer, or the Silk Market. The name in itself entices foreigners touring the alleyways of the Old City, as well as Libyan women on the search for the newest fashion trends. The silk is woven in bright and straw-coloured stripes, and sown with silver conductive thread. The cloth is used to artfully wrap what is known as a traditional dress for Libyan women.
