The traditional outfit of the ‘Yörük Efeleri’ from the Afyon province. Late-Ottoman era, end of 19th century. These men belonged to the 18th-19th century militia of the Yörük ethnic group; they sometimes turned themselves into professional brigands, similar to the Zeybeks from Izmir/Aydın. This is a recent workshop-made copy, as worn by folk dance groups; the ‘golden’ embroidery imitates the rich (goldwork embroidered) costume of the higher-rank Efe.
