Ikat Silk Coat ‘Chapan’
Made of the famous Uzbek silk ikat, this vintage woman’s ‘chapan’ has a nicely subdued, but rich coloration and is very modern in its simplified pattern. It is not new, but is not antique- we think mid-20th century. The edges have all been adorned in decorative machine stitching in a pleasant band of pattern, and inch wide lines of stitching all over give it a quilted effect. An added stylized ‘collar and lapels’ are a quaint nod to fashion. It is lined in a lightweight printed cotton. The size is a bit small to wear, but it would display nicely on a wall. Condition is quite good, tho there is some wear evident.
Size: 46″h x 53″ across arms
