Housecoat, anonymous, c. 1750 - c. 1799

printing, l 154.0cm More details

Large quantities of housecoats were sent from India to the Netherlands in the 17th and 18th centuries; at times ready made, sometimes as ‘sewing kits’. This robe is probably the product of such a kit. A more common practice at that time was retailoring this kind of robe from a large cloth, a palampore.
