On the occasion of International Museum Day (May 18) and the National Cultural Heritage Week (May 14-22), Reza Abbasi Museum in Tehran opened an exhibition of clothes worn during Qajar rule (1786-1925).
The apparel, belonging to the museum, are considered unique for their designs and textiles; also the clothes have remained relatively intact after about a century, Tandismag.com wrote on its Persian website.
