Product Information

Caftan was designed on a beige surface and "çintamani" pattern was used. The spots took their original colours by means of being mixed with Carmen which is also known as illumination red and black. They are then filled with the dripping technique. The waves were also filed with the same technique with the original form of bedahşi dark blue. The spots were illuminated with golden clouds and these clouds were contoured with black. 24 carat gold was used for the whole of the interlining of the caftan and the clouds in the spots.

Dimensions: Caftan was designed as 15 x 12 cm on 21×30 cm paper.

Çintemani in Persian language is also known as çintamani, spot, panther spot, three balls and pelenk. The two wavy shape aligning together resemble the tiger or panther skin. This ornament which originates from the Middle Asia was used for the handicrafts such as tile, fabric and carpet after the 16th century. It is also commonly used for caftans due its the tiger skin look.
