A cotton ‘uckur’ (waistband/sash) with embroidered ends. From Bursa or the Marmara region, c. 1900. Various techniques of ‘two-sided’ embroidery were used (identical on both sides of the fabric), executed in silk (for the coloured parts) and with metal threads and strips (‘tel kırma’) for the ‘goldwork’. (Inv.nr. brdw034 - Kavak Costume Collection - Antwerpen/Belgium).
