Woman's cloak (chyrpy)

Woman's cloak (chyrpy)


Cotton; silk: embroidery

Overall: 112.4 x 58.4 cm (44 1/4 x 23 in.)

Gift of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Wade 1916.1468



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.
