An elegant repeating pattern of metallic silver cintemani (leopard spots) imposed on a hazy sky powder blue background. The cintemani pattern is very symbolic of the Ottoman period and originally came from China/Mongolia. This fabric is finer and lighter than the others in the collection making it a suitable choice for summer.
This remarkably contemporary design was first woven around 435 years ago for Sultan Murad III’s daughter Ayse. The original kaftan is stored at Topkapi Palace Istanbul ref 13/198.
