#Clothing in ancient Iran: #Sasanian period!

پوشاک ایرانی: دوره #ساسانی

A comprehensive exploration of ancient Iranian textiles & clothing. Please retweet so more people can see the thread :)

🧵⤵️
See previous threads on Parthian, Achaemenid era clothing, belts, and footwear in ancient Persia

I start with observation that to me it does not matter if actual tunics, robes etc. found from Central Asia to Egypt are not exactly "Sasanian". Some seem to take extreme views on whether X or Y collar or sleeve make something not Sasanian etc.

Some #SundayArchaeology #Paleolithic haute couture:

These ab. 25-30k y/o so-called #Venus figurines have been discussed a lot as religious, health & fertility symbols, & mother goddesses.

But some of them offer s glimpse at another interesting, often overlooked details …
A number of these figures also show a couple of details which might be interpreted as headdress - and even #clothing from the Upper #Paleolithic #Gravettian (of which we have little evidence otherwise).
There has been, however, some interesting research on such #iconographic evidence for #clothing, e.g. by O. Soffer et al. in Archaeology Ethnology and Anthropology of Eurasia 1(1), 2000:

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

@EveryAlbertan
Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

Welcome to my wardrobe.

A personal #autistic perspective on how my clothes make me feel, and why I wear what I do.

Clothes can make me feel good.
The way my day goes is partly shaped by what I wear.

I get #SensoryJoy out of the feel of fabrics like velvet, corduroy and silk.

Styling matters. Both tight and loose fits can feel good.

Patterns and colours give me pleasure too.

As a child I got put into some very uncomfortable outfits.

One that sticks out was the stiff orange corduroy tube I had to wear as a bridesmaid in the 1960s.

Harsh fabric that rubbed and chafed felt very bad indeed.

Clothing got much easier once I had some control over it.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

Hello, everyone and welcome back to our weekly #GEMChats! This week, we'll discuss the results of the poll on whether #celebrities make successful #entrepreneurs!

Let's begin, shall we?

#startup #womenentrepreneur #business #showbiz
So recently @KylieJenner sparked a heated debate on how celebrities are successful at entrepreneurship when she was announced to become the youngest self-made #billionaire ever.

cnbc.com/2018/07/11/kyl…

#KUWTK
Some feel strongly that she only dethroned #MarkZuckerberg from that position because she is part of the #Kardashian and her #entrepreneurial venture has multi-level of safety net and it allows her to #scaleup at an exponential rate.
