Sashes such as this one find their origin in the imported Persian scarves which travelled through the Ottoman Empire en route to Poland. The rise of the Afghan Hotaki dynasty and the resulting conflicts forced the production to a halt in Persia, and forced relocation to Constantinople and ultimately Poland. Benefiting from Polish noble patronage the workshops operated under Armenian control. The sashes replaced the former imported Persian scarves and formed an integral part of the male nobility's formal dress inspired by oriental designs.

A more elaborate sash is at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (inv. T.98-1968). Others sold at Christie's South Kensington, 11 October 2013, lot 863 and 9 October 2015, lot 222
