Unworn, front opening, long-sleeved man’s robe in black synthetic material, decorated with panels of embroidery down the front edges, along the bottom hems and around the cuffs. The embroidery is in crosses, diamonds and triangles in white, green, gold and orange thread. On the back is an inverted triangle with similar motifs, and a green bead and red tassel at each point of the triangle. There are two slits in the hem, to allow the robe to be worn by a horseman. The neck ties with red wool. For local wear, perhaps on festival days.
