The Suleyman

One of my favorite places in Istanbul is the Suleyman Camii, a mosque built to honor Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent, who ruled the Ottoman Empire during its Golden Age. I admired the painted filigree patterns that ornamented the lower edge of the interior dome, and was inspired to replicate the concept in textile.

A band of lace and beadwork overlays the crown of this hat, just above a fur cuff. A single strand bead tassel simulates the lantern chain that hangs down from the apex of the dome. If you hold this hat above your head, inverted, you will get the smallest feeling of what the domes look like in this wonderful city.

This style looks works particularly well when made from brocades. I also offer a Garden Suleyman for those who prefer not to wear fur.
