Dar Anahita: Medieval Middle Eastern Textiles

There are several drawers full of ancient textiles here in Dar Anahita...

You can take a look at a few fragments from the 9th to the 14th centuries.

Actually there are seven there, from Iberia, Sicily, Egypt, and Central Asia.

Then there's one section devoted to the Mamluks, Turks and Circassians who ruled Egypt and the Levant from 1250 through the end of the SCA-period. Here are several pieces of embroidery, a couple hats, and a tunic front with a multitude of embroidery stitches.

Or you can just head back to the Courtyard.

Or go all the way back to the Front Hall Directory
