Three unidentified Apache women in traditional dress, often referred to as camp dresses, at an Anglo gathering in an unknown location.

Camp dresses are common traditional garb for Apache women. Typically made of cotton, they are modest and loose, covering a woman from her arms and shoulders down to her ankles. The Apache camp dress itself was born out of convenience after Apaches came into contact with the Mexicans and Anglos. Having access to cloth through trade, women opted to use light, comfortable cottons in replacement of their buckskin or other leather clothing, particularly during the warm seasons.
