A variety of different textiles have historically been sourced from the northern hills of Galilee, including the famous striped saya (also known as damascene silk) from neighboring Syria. One common feature is that women didn’t wear a dress but more of a coat, known as a jellayeh, with trousers underneath.
We designed a cape in a similar cut with incongruous patches of saya, still made in Syria to this day. Similar to the traditional style, the indigo cloth provides an elegant backdrop for the bright geometric patches of diamonds, triangles, and rectangles.
