Vintage Bedouin Thobe Egyptian Kaftan with Coins

This is a vintage thobe or kaftan worn by the women of a bedouin tribe of the Sinai peninsula in Egypt. The black cotton fabric is embroidered with pink designs and stitched with dozens of old coins, which all look to be Ottoman, most dating to 1223, which would make them 1808 in the Gregorian calendar. This piece is in excellent condition with no stains.
