Silk Kaftan, 16th century, Topkapi Palace Museum  Made from a single piece of kemha (brocaded silk) without repeats, this mid-16th-century kaftan, probably worn by a son of Süleyman the Magnificent, is unique in its rich palette and marks the peak of textile weaving. The black-green ground is filled with a riot of saz leaves, pomegranates, rosettes and peonies, recalling Iznik tiles in the Topkapı Palace’s Circumcision Chamber, which dates from 1520, and manuscripts of the same era
