Antique Silk Brocade Kaftan Moroccan 19th C.


Exquisite antique 19th c Moroccan kaftan with silk brocade and extensive metal thread embroidery.

The type of garment referred to as kaftan was known in Persia and the Ottoman Empire before arriving in Morocco, probably in the 16th century. Kaftans are typically worn with fabric belts, and those made of elegant materials such as silk brocade or velvet were reserved for special occasions. The silk in this kaftan is similar to imports from Lyons, France, and indicates this garment was made for an elite and cosmopolitan member of urban Moroccan society.

Condition: fair to good. Structurally sound, quite delicate at neck with damage. Areas with tears/rips, discoloration and stains. Please see photos for statement.
