Chepken - one of most widely spread clothing in Turkish-ethnic cultural environment

Baku, April 19, AZERTAC

“Chepken” was a part of both male and female clothing sets. Atmagols (a type of “chocka”) were usually added to “chepkens”. The presented “chepken” was made of black velvet. It was used as male clothing.

Its surface was decorated with “ketebe” (colophon) and “afshar flower” patterns embroidered with silver wires and silk threads. The stitches were covered with welt made of galloon and silk fabric. The fact that the “chepken” belonging to the Afshar people was made with great taste shows that it was a part of the clothing set of the people from upper class.
