Perisan Long Vest

This brocade vest was a part of a woman’s outfit in 19th century Iran. It would have been worn over a loose-fitting shirt and either a skirt or pants. A jacket would be worn on top.

The coat is made of brocade with an overall boteh pattern on a pale mustard yellow ground. The front and arm openings are edged with gold ribbon and black silk fringe. Along every border is couched gold embroidery.

This brocade is a richly decorative shuttle-woven fabric with richly colored silk threads.
