Gloves


This is a pair of men’s gloves, knitted purl stitch wool. Length is 16cm and width is 11cm. Unfortunately, there is not much more detail in the entry of the Brooklyn Museum’s Arts of the Islamic World collection. However, the design on the wrist of the glove is very similar to Mamluk samplers of pattern darning.

Please let me know what you think!
