Kaftan, Met Museum, ca. 1590
Kaftans like this one were worn by Ottoman princes who died when they were children. They were preserved in imperial tombs where, in accordance with Ottoman custom, they were placed over the graves of the deceased.This kaftan may have come from one of the graves of the 19 younger sons of Sultan Murat III.
