Glyndebourne Ottoman Silks Topkapi Kaftan

£382.00 £955.00

This silk ‘Topkapi’ kaftan jacket has been created exclusively by Ottoman Silks for Glyndebourne with a bespoke woven fabric. The design is taken from the imperial wardrobe of Sultan Selim II (1524 – 1574). A classic ‘A’ frame jacket, worn above the knee. Carefully hand finished hems and stylish slits allow for the cuffs to be rolled up to reveal the silk lining. Beautifully designed, this classic piece is perfect for dressing up on summer nights.

The Siyah Amina fabric is a black silk variation of the Amina design – an intricate and staggered ogival lattice of tulips and medallions, combined with a repeating horizontal pattern. Originally hand woven in pure silk as a ceremonial robe that was long sleeved and collarless with side slits lined with beaver fur.

Our exclusive replicate design is expertly woven on jacquard looms by the best silk mills in Bursa – Turkey’s silk capital. With over 500 years of history, this intricate design encapsulates the imperial luxury of its time. Like their opulent beginnings, the fabric has been tailored to produce this unique collection to delight and impress in equal measure.
