Fragment of a Robe (Jama)

Not on view

This textile is the top half of a jama, a long-sleeved garment that crosses over the chest and is tied with lappets under one arm. Usually the jama reaches the knee but this garment has been cut just above the waist. Its fine white cotton ground is embroidered with an overall pattern of pink flowers with green leaves set in staggered rows. The collar, the borders of the sleeves and the ends of the five lappets have a denser pattern of scrolling green vines with pink flowers.
