17.5” shoulder to hem; 9.5” sleeve length

Dark blue velvet (feels like silk, but might be synthetic)

Machine-embroidered; Lurex threads –  (One blue flower petal was deliberately left unfinished as custom dictated.)

Synthetic cloth lining

Single button closure

Very good condition

 

This cute little robe was made for a young boy to wear on festive occasions.

It’s a smaller version of the traditional Bukharan man’s embroidered velvet robe that would have been worn at weddings.

While it’s not hand-embroidered, it still has the look of a special little coat.
