This green goddess is wonderful to wear and is a fine antique silk Turkmen robe from Central Asia. It has been sewn to its striped cotton lining in hand sewn straight lines all over the robe. This gives the delicate soft dark green silk strength.
Each part has been made lovingly, most probably within a family, rather than as a commercial item. In almost perfect condition. There is some wear to the silk appropriate to age. But still robust and wearable.
Late 19th/ Early 20th century.
This is a rare collectible item.
