Mehmet Cetinkaya Embroidered ''Lakai'' Silk Coat in Green & Red
This kaftan was inspired a 19th century Lakai suzani from Uzbekistan.

The kaftan was embroidered with silk threads using a surface-darning technique on hand-spun and handwoven silk ground. Each piece is made honoring the history of its cultural tradition, with no two pieces produced exactly alike.
