A well-to-do lady outdoors and indoors. For outdoors (left), she is wrapped in a very large “Bağdad bürgüsü” (‘bürgü’, or ‘ferace’, which is a kind of baggy cloak). This one is made of silk brocade, with tiny golden stars woven into the fabric. Late Ottoman, urban, 19th century (left: late 19th century, right: circa 1800). Both the ‘bürgü’ and the ‘bindallı’ embroidered costume are from Konya. (Kavak Folklor Ekibi & Costume Collection - Antwerpen/Belgium).
