>A typical garment worn by ancient Greek women in 600 B.C. - A.D. 200. Chitons were worn in Babylon.
The Ionic Chiton is patterned after the Peplos, which was pinned together. However, after an incident, laws against pinned garments were made to keep pins off the peplos, which provided weapons in the hands of mad women. Our Ionic chitons are sewn together at intervals along the sleeves, as were the ancient garments. The Ionic Chiton is often worn with a rope belt crossing over the breasts or around the waist.
Our Ionic Chiton comes with a rope belt. Optionally, trim can be put along the bottom, and buttons can be hand-sewn to the sewn intervals (pictured). Made from a natural cotton muslin, cotton gauze or polycotton fabric, we offer many colors of Ionic Chitons.
This garment is quite wide before tying and adjusting the rope belt.
