This Uzbek silk striped robe dates to the late 19th or early 20th century. The material for the fabric being silk, this robe was made for a wealthy man, most likely in Bukhara. Its large size, with a sleeve span of just under two metres from cuff to cuff, and generous cut underline the status this precious garment would have afforded its wearer. The simplicity of the bold stripes of 15 cm width and in just two colours adds to the impact of this robe.

The lining is unusual: it is an off-white silk damask over printed with delicate flowers in two shades of blue. Predominantly light green, bias cut silk ikat was used for the facing (see image two). The edges are finished by warp twining in white, maroon, green, yellow and light blue silk yarns, with the trim woven as it was being attached to the robe. This would have been the final stage in the assembly of the robe.
