The first possible tunic embroidery

ashmoleantunic1 This textile was made between the 10th-15th centuries in Egypt. It is linen embroidered with brown silk with flax thread in the seams. The size is 26 cm long and 12 cm wide. It is currently in the Ashmolean Museum.

I have charted up the design. It is available in pdf format.
