Hand-embroidered very fine silk lacing stitch (“kesdi”) on dark indigo handwoven silk

Turkmen women embroidered elaborate trim for the collars of their robes.

The stitching was very fine and when the robes were no longer serviceable, the embroidered collars were often removed and reused on another robe.

The center detail of this collar is shown in the two detail photographs.
