Lighting with electric light bulbs became popular in the 20th century in Iran and has been an integral part of celebrating religious holidays (such as the Mab’ath or Sha’ban) and public celebrations (such as 4th of Aban before the revolution and Fajr after the revolution). Today colour bulbs and fluorescent lights are used widely for outdoor lightings and Illuminations.
Originally published in France between 1876 and 1888, Auguste Racinet’s Le Costume Historique was the most wide-ranging and intelligent study of clothing ever published. Covering the world history of costume, dress, and style from antiquity through the end of the 19th century, the great work — “consolidated” in 1888 into six volumes containing nearly 500 plates — remains, to this day, completely unique in its scope and detail.
Iran is a vast country containing many different ethnicities and languages so the traditional dress tends to vary by region, territory and sometimes even individual village. By in large, the majority of the ethnicities pertaining to the regions of Iran, dictate the traditional costumes. These include dress styles for Torkemans, Mazandarani, Bakhtiaris, Baluchis, Loris, Gilanis, Kurds, Ghoochanis, Qashqais, and many others.
