Archeologist Collection

This collection is inspired by two of the first women in the world to contribute to the field of archaeology -
Professor Dorothy Garrod (1892-1968) and
Dame Kathleen Kenyon (1906-1976).
There most prominent research was done at Mount Carmel, the Tower of David and Jericho in British Mandate Palestine Eretz Israel.
The collection is built on the foundation of clothing patterns that these women probably wore in the 1920s and 30s combined with ancient clothing patterns witch where all constructed from basic forms as Triangles, squares and rectangles. This creates a distinct modern look with heritage. Colors are worm calm and natural, Like Khaki, golden unbleached cotton and Dusty pink and peach - hand dyed from natural extracts made in T.K studio from local plants. The fabrics used range from stiff or crisp cotton poplin, cotton drill and heavy linen to crumbling and wrinkled Muslin and gaze.
These two fascinating and groundbreaking woman are described as quiet, opinionated and brave who devoted their lives to the study of the ancient cultures of the Levant. It was extremely rare and bold of these women to travel on their own to a different country in times where it was not common for a "lady" to do so. In the Levant they found their freedom, "place" and there profession, collaborating constantly with the diverse populations of the area and making huge breakthroughs in the fields of Archaeology, History and Science. Both apparently were not interested at all in fashion, and related to clothing as something completely practical. As many working women in the 1920s and 30s they mostly wore men's clothing like cotton under shirts, smock's, breeches, riding garments, utility clothing and safari suits with a "dress down" approach of westerners in the Middle East.
Kushnir finds that Garrod and Kenyon lives illustrate the most basic values and ideas of her work- constant search for knowledge about the story of mankind threw our beautiful creations and with great responsibility, passing the story onward to the public for us to keep and cherish.
Prof Garrod and Dame Kenyon embody Kushnir's fundamental belief that digging, discovering, knowing and understanding of the past is essential for future development in the most literal way possible.
