"Women's (sic) straight chapan style robe with very wide sleeves. The robe has exceptionally rich color and dynamic patterning; the horizontal running zig-zag designs are split by white triangles enclosing horned forms. The triangular forms appear to run in opposite directionsin alternating panels. There is very visible hammered patterning, giving a surface appearance similar to that of watered silk."
