Oman exhibition, 17 October 2009 - 18 April 2010

The TRC provides fourteen clothing outfits for large Oman exhibition in the Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam

For the large, international exhibition on Oman, which is shown in the Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam, the TRC has provided a set of fourteen outfits from various parts of Oman. The outfits for men, women and children come from various cities and regions of Oman and represent the wide range of dress styles worn in the country. The diversity of colours, patterns and forms reflects local and Bedouin origins as well as influences from neighbouring countries such as the Gulf States and Yemen, as well as more distant trading countries including India, Iran and East Africa, notably the island of Zanzibar.
