Dress. Cotton, embroidered in India w/ silk thread using chain stitch, lined with linen. The floral pattern is so finely embroidered that at first sight it could be mistaken for a printed design. It is typical of the superb chain-stitch embroidery done in Gujarat, in western India, by professional craftsmen of the Mochi community, using a tambour hook & a needle. The fabric would have been imported as piece-goods & made up in England. Open Robe c 1780. # T.391-1970.
