what a forgotten piece of fashion!! the kaftan….
Der Kaftan (entlehnt vor dem 16. Jh. aus türkisch kaftan, von arabisch قفطان, DMG qufṭān, persisch ġaftān‚ unter dem Panzer zu tragendes Gewand) ist ein langes Woll- oder Seidenhemd aus Brust- und Rückenstück, das über den Hüften gegürtet wird.
A kaftan or caftan (from Persian خفتان xaftân) is a front-buttoned coat or overdress, usually reaching to the ankles, with long sleeves. It can be made of wool, cashmere, silk, or cotton. It may be worn with a sash.
It is a variant of the robe or tunic, versions of which have been worn by countless cultures around the world, for thousands of years. The kaftan is associated with Islamic or Islamicate cultures. Kaftans were often worn as court robes; the splendor and specific decorations of the kaftan indicated the rank of the wearer. Sovereigns often gave ornate kaftans as a mark of favor.
