Description

A block-printed, resist-dyed cotton textile fragment from the 14th15th century features elaborate vine tendrils forming complex symmetrical arabesques. Several variations of this design are known in textile finds from Egypt, all identified as Indian imports from Gujarat. Given the strong Islamic flavor of the design, the Museums textile was likely produced in Gujarat for export to Egypt, made as an inexpensive imitation of fourteenth-century luxury silks woven in Egypt or Iran. We have adapted its elegant motif of scrolling leaves and vines for our scarf.

Silk Habutai. Imported. 67'' x 21''.
