Designed as a ceremonial robe and hand-woven in pure silk, this kaftan was made in the 3rd quarter of the 16th century and part of the extensive Topkapi Palace Royal Wardrobe collection, Istanbul. The original was long-sleeved and collarless with side slits and lined with beaver fur. The hem has a pistachio coloured lining. Like most kaftans, the front is cut with a diagonal overlap. It is believed to have belonged to Selim II (1524-1574) Inventory number 13/932.
