Cream twill, weave wool fabric, polychrome wool, embroidery threads, brown cotton knit braid, knotted brown silk buttons.

Description:

Men’s ceremonial coat style gown. Full-length A-line coat made from fine cream wool that was embroidered prior to being cut. It is likely that the coat was made from embroidered Kashmiri shawls decorated on corners and edges. Materials are cream twill, weave wool fabric, polychrome wool, embroidery threads, brown cotton knit braid, and 2 knotted brown silk buttons. This type of un-dyed wool is very fine, and we have only one. When this type of coat came back in to popularity, this specific design and color never appeared again. It is very rare. Lined with un-dyed silk in a natural color. There is a slit on the side for a pocket.
