Munisak (lady's coat) in a warp-faced Ikat weave with a silk warp and a cotton weft. Russian printed cotton lining. This quilted woman's coat with a comb design has a lovely embroidery detail where it has been taken in under the arms to give it a fan-shaped outline.
Silk Ikat coats were very expensive and time-consuming to produce and required the weavers to be extremely skilful. They were a mark of the wearer's wealth and high social standing.
Very slightly stained, overall very good condition
