Welcome visitors, for those who don't know please allow me to introduce myself. I am a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism. Within the Society, I am known as Jahanarabanu Vivana. Jahanara being a given name, banu being the title for lady used in 7th C Persia. As you probably guessed, Jahanara is a 7h Century Persian Noblewoman. As such within the Society, I love to help my fellow noblewomen learn to weave, embroider and make clothing. For more information on these topics and others, please feel free to peruse the menu below, on the left. The blog will provide you with day to day updates from my studio. Namaste,Jahanara
This was originally listed in the museum as a deocartive attachment. The website now lists it as a lid. Based on Parthian era metal decorative attachments, I still believe this may have been sewn onto a clothing item.
