Gold leaf textile, 19th C. India. Gold and silver leaf is used in Indian textiles as a decorative finish on fabric, which is an influence of the Muslim courts. This style of ornamentation is called “Roghan” and the technique is used as a substitute for elaborate embroideries. This design was adapted from a 19th century Roghan head covering. Embroidered in two tones of gold metal wire on a black silk ground.
