There are 21 clothes belonging to Mevlâna and his son Sultan Veled in Konya Mevlana Museum. These clothes are very valuable in terms of the history of the Mevlevilik Sect and the Turkish Fabric Art. For the first time, these clothes were introduced to the world of science by publishing in 1930 the Museum Guide book, the founding director of the museum, Mehmet Yusuf. After a long break, Mehmet Önder introduced these clothes both in his book and in his separate article. Researchers working on Turkish fabrics have remained from the Seljuk period and approached with doubt that they belong to Mevlana. However, no studies have been conducted to resolve these doubts. After these two studies Nurhan Atasoy, who made many researches and publications on Turkish fabric art, While introducing the Mevlevi clothes in his book introducing the religious orders, he also examined these clothes and took out drawings of some of them, he stated that the cardigans were similar to the cardigans in the Topkapi Palace and that they might have been sent as gifts from the palace. Newly published museum inventory books and the memoirs of Hafız Zühtü Efendi, one of the statesmen who lived in Konya, published new information about these clothes. Under this information, it was tried to reconsider the clothes and introduce early examples and genres of Turkish fabric art. In addition, Mevlevi grandfathers wear these clothes every day in the morning and chanting, there fore we have learned that the clothes are very worn.
