Albania Doll Dropull

Albanian doll dressed in the traditional clothing of Dropull. Dropull (or Dropulli) is a municipality and region in Gjirokastër county in South Albania, which is mainly inhabited by ethnic Greeks. So this costume may strongly be Greek influenced.

There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!

Happy collecting,
