Sandy Beaches

 

 

Sile Bezi

Today was the third day of Eid here in Bahrain, and after a very busy first two days it was a little more relaxed.

So I chose to wear a cream coloured dress which I bought from Sile, a small seaside town on the outskirsts of Istanbul in Turkey. This is where my mother’s from and it’s very well known for it’s Sile Bezi or Sile Cloth. A natural fabric that’s woven like a type of muslin and is treated in the local sea with the salty water and then air dried.

It’s beautifully light and is used for a whole variety of things from dresses to blouses to table cloths and napkins. Traditionally it’s hand embroidered in colourful floral and symetric designs.

My dress has a thick lace edging at the hem and neckline, plain, not so traditional maybe but none the less extremely comfortable. I added an old rope typr designed belt for a more boho look.
