Suleyman's Garden

I brought the Suleyman design concept back from Istanbul, after admiring the most remarkable filagree patterns painted on buildings and on the borders of medieval manuscripts of Persian origin.  I named this design after Suleyman the Magnificent, the sultan who ruled the Ottoman Empire during its Golden Age. 

To simulate the filagree patterns, I lay a band of Battenburg lace and beadwork onto the crown of the hat, above a fur cuff, and finish it with a button or single strand bead tassel.  This style looks works particularly well when made from brocades. 

The garden-themed cuff was inspired by an exhibit of medieval Persian and East Indian miniatures at the Seattle Art Museum, and is translated here in appliqued leaves and embroidery on a padded fabric cuff.
