Q
Hi, I've been hunting for a while and I was wondering if you could point me in a good direction of literature. I'm looking for fabrics available in Europe in 1200s (Specifically 1273!), also sewing and dying methods. I'm a cosplayer making a costume from reference (Ves, The Witcher), so I was looking for a material like denim/calico. Also the character wears a quilted jacket of a very high quality looking fabric. She's kings guard, so the materials are pretty high quality. I hope you can help! x

My area of expertise really doesn’t go back that far, but I’d suggest checking out the V&A collection- they have a really huge collection of textiles going back for hundreds of years, with information about it all.
