This Syrian striped coat (yelek) was made in the 20th century out of silk with a cotton lining. It has a rectangular shape and slits up the sides for ease of movement. The coat is red and grey striped with a subtle dotted pattern in the grey stripes. The maker added blue patches under the arms and around the collar, along with contrasting stitching, which add an extra layer of visual interest to this garment.

This style of coat would likely have been worn by a Syrian woman over a sleeveless robe, dress and trousers. Similarly styled coats were made in countries throughout the region, like Albania, Egypt, and Turkey. This continuity is likely due to the influence of the Ottoman Empire.

Keep in mind ...

Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
