History of the banyan
A banyan is a garment that European men and women wore in the late 17th and 18th century, influenced by the Japanese kimono brought to Europe by the Dutch East India Company in the mid-17th century. Also called a morning gown, robe de chambre or nightgown, the banyan was a loose, T-shaped gown or kimono-like garment, made of cotton, linen, or silk and worn at home as a sort of dressing gown or informal coat over the shirt and breeches. The typical banyan is cut en chemise, with the sleeves and body cut as one piece. An alternative style of banyan used to be cut like a coat, fitted, with set-in sleeves, and was closed with buttons.
