Dress

In addition to various jewelry, the woman from Ust’-Al’ma 620 had been buried with expensive clothing, which was decorated with glass beads and gold trimmings. Through an elaborate examination of the textile remnants, the garments could be almost completely reconstructed.

The lower garment seems to have been a long dress whose fabric was woven from blue and red threads and thus had a purple appearance. The neckline was embroidered with various types of gold appliqués: openwork, rectangular platelets, enameled gold leaf crosses, and gold tubes in a coordinated pattern along the edge. Because the lower hem of the dress was not provided with a comparable trimming, the former length is irrefutable to reconstruct.

Even the coat, which was made of a red woolen cloth, was decorated with trimmings. In the chest were sewn rectangular gold plates and golden tubes, which were coordinated with the applications of the neckline on the dress. The serves were decorated with small golden plates in pyramidal shape, golden hemispheres and carnelian beads. Interesting is the design of the sleeve seam, which was designed to form an extraordinary drape.

Headgear

To the left of the skull the remains of a headgear were found whose interior construction consisted of thin, curved wooden boards over which a fabric had been draped. This was decorated with over 40 sheet and strip-shaped gold applications, which must have been glued, because there was no evidence of a hole or eyelets. At the time of the funeral, the headgear was crowned with a collection of grasses and flowers.

Shoes

Along the tibia bone rows of small blue glass beads were found, which were probably used as an ornament for the boots. These were made of reddish brown leather from which fragments could still be secured.
