Minoan Clothing

Images from the ancient Minoan culture give the form of clothing that is strange to us and raise questions as to the nature of its composition. Some examples follow:

In the third image above the women seems to wear a skirt made of animal skin. The previous images seem to image elaborately tailored dresses. But this is likely an illusion since weaving skill and tailoring could not have been that well developed. This seems likely because the later clothing of ancient Greece is based on a rectangle of cloth. One possibility is that the garments are simply made of string. With this possibility in minnd the following images were made with dolls clothed in garments made of string. See String Skirt. See also String Skirt

Here is a Minoan costume modeled on a doll. The costume consists of
a flounced skirt and a girdle. The girdle is holding
the skirt as a belt.
