FUSTANELLA

Post  ZEUS10 on Wed Jan 28, 2009 9:22 am

The Fustanella is a fold skirt, which is carried particularly in Albania and Greece(by Arvanites), traditionally by men, thus a man skirt. It can appear a short stiff skirt , usually pleated, made of white cotton or linen, and in the country of its origin Albania(or Epirus) we also find the long version. The foustanela was worn by the Albanian fighters of the 1821 revolution. It's been some time now, that the newly created nations, try to claim any Albanian heritage as their own. The following pictures/photos is in response to those false claims and show that this dress is exclusively originated from Albanian folks.

The similarity betwen Alexander costume and Albanian is astonishing.







Sometime the Greek imagination goes further, insinuating that Albanians borrowed that dress from the Greeks and thats why the dress fades out in North Albania.
Its not true that fustanella is present only in the south Albania. The following photos will prove how false is their propaganda.

Even the King of Greece after the independence is wearing an Arnavut(albanian in turkish language) costume and not a Greek one because theirs is just a borrowing-stealing from us.

Short kilt

Post  ZEUS10 on Fri Jan 30, 2009 10:42 am

The short garment appears on the ancient artifacts:





Since most of the greatest fighters of the so called Greek revolution were from Epirus(Albanians) and Arvanites(Albanians) the new Greek state adopted this costume as a garment for the Evzones, Proedriki Froura (Presidential Guard), an elite ceremonial unit that guards the Greek Tomb of the Unknown Soldier



All the the reliable historical sources tell us that this dress is an original Arbanite(Epiriote-Albanian) dress, but
we really dont need to look the historical sources, to understand where this version was adopted from, just take a look at these pictures:

Vasili i Vogel Represents the fustanella :)

Post  AuLoNa on Fri Jan 30, 2009 3:20 pm




Very Happy



Peloponnessos, Greece (1830)


Albanian warriors introduced the fustanella into the Peloponnese region. Created by special tailors, this garment measured up to 40 yards around and was made of white linen panels which were covered with fat for waterproofing. A short, richly decorated jacket worn over a full-sleeved white shirt, embroidered leggings or white stockings, a sash and fez completed the outfit.
The women wears a misofori or muslin petticoat, and a kalpaki on her head, with a fancy tassle. A silk gown over a fine chemise with an embroidered front showed a low neckline. Over this was worn a short, fitted velvet jacket embroidered with gold braid.

Thanks for post so many great pictures. It is a joke when you see the fustanella and such referred to as Greek dress as anyone who knows anything knows the fustanella is Albanian. Any traditional costume worn by Greeks or Turks was stolen from others. lol

Sometimes even the women get envolved in the military actions, so they wear the same dress as the men do.

The Greek thieves will never stop stealing Albanian culture and heroes:



The above Hero is Theodhor Kollokotroni an ARVANITE=ALBANIAN and the soldiers dancing in the background are the same with these Tosk Albanians:
