Textile fragment of printed and mordant and resist-dyed cotton, possibly made in Gujarat, found at Fostat, Old Cairo, 15th century-16th century

"This fragment is one of many hundreds of printed cotton fabrics from Gujarat which have been recovered from several sites in Egypt. This one (like the others in the V&A’s collection) reputedly came from Fostat, the former capital of Egypt, which has given its name to the whole group, which are often referred to as ‘Fostat fragments’. Such textiles formed part of an extensive Indian trade with the Arab world conducted through the ports of Western India."
