The early Mughal Empire rulers Akbar and Jahangir were interested in fashion stuffs, carpets, and ornamental textiles. Both emperors enjoyed inventing new names for the garments they would wear. Akbar is recorded as having ordered a new coat or dress with a round skirt to be tied on the right side. This jama, from Burhanpur or Hyderabad, may be a later version of the Akbari garment. It is made of painted cotton, with the collars and seams in gold leaf. A truly lavish robe for any man.
