Description

Much of the Mughals’ wealth derived from the international export of textiles, which became increasingly fashionable throughout Europe and America during the 18th century. This garment was made in India for the aristocratic French market. The floral designs inspired by the southern Indian dyed fabrics known as palampore have been enlivened by labor-intensive gilding and burnishing.
