The Story behind Allylak
Allylak’s are the legendary apparels of the ancient Persian queens. The most famous person to wear an Allylak was Scheherazade. In the tale of One Thousand and One Nights, the story says that King Shahryar becomes attracted to Scheherazade because of her beauty which is made more enchanting by her Allylak.
In the tale Shahryar is betrayed by his wife, which makes him believe that all women will, in the end, betray him. So every night for three years, he takes a wife and has her executed the next morning This continues until he marries Scheherazade, his advisor’s beautiful and clever daughter. For 1001 nights in a row, Scheherazade tells Shahryar a story, each time stopping at dawn with the story unfinished and the King wanting to find out what happens next. This forces him to keep her alive for another day so that she can complete the tale the next night.
