Description

This yellow silk is richly embroidered in the button-hole stitch. The pattern of this woman's cloak resembles one of the patterns on the so-called Bokhara stripes used for fixing tents.

The garment is lined with printed cotton fabric, which seems to be a product of India or Persia, and very crude block-printed cotton fabric with simple allover patterns of red and black dots and circular medallions.
