Ottoman Turkish Illustrations from:

Peter Mundy's Album, "A briefe relation of the Turckes, their kings, Emperors, or Grandsigneurs, their conquests, religion, customes, habbits, etc"

Istanbul 1618

Hantuncuk, young woman of rank


The woman wears a short black sleeveless kaftan over a long red one faced with green and lined with golden brown which is tucked up into her white sash with gold lace or fringe edges. A short golden brown under-kaftan can be seen at the front opening over her white gomlek and white shalvar. Greyish patterned, tight, wrist-length sleeves emerge from under her red kaftan and may be associated with the under-kaftan. She wears yellow slippers on her feet. The only difference between her clothing and that of a sixteenth century Ottoman woman is the tall cap on her head.
