This article examines how two 17th century European travelers, the Dutchman Cornelius de Bruyn and the Briton John Covel, portrayed dress in the Ottoman Empire. Although both individuals record their observations about clothing, their methods and perspectives are very different. De Bruyn, a Dutch painter, focuses on the esthetic features of clothing, depicting the beauty and complexity of Ottoman fabrics and handicrafts. Covel, an English priest, on the other hand, is more concerned with the social and cultural significance of clothing in Ottoman society, highlighting the function that clothing plays in defining identity and status. This article provides insight into the diversity and complexity of dress in the Ottoman Empire as well as how European travelers viewed it through an examination of their texts and images.

Keywords :Ottoman Costumes, British Travellers, Dutch Travellers, Cornelis De Bruyn, John Covel
