Hawran Drawing

Syria traditional clothing dresses folk Hawran Weiss-Armush

Ziad Zokari captures another version of the traditional costume from Hawran.

Hawran extends from near Damascus and Mount Hermon in the north to the Ajloon Mountains of Jordan in the south. It includes the Golan Heights in the west. The volcanic soils of Hauran make it one of the most fertile regions in Syria; it produces considerable wheat and is famous for its vineyards.
