About Medieval Women's Clothes
These pages look at information about medieval women's clothing.
They cover what buying options were available
and to whom, custom made clothing, the way clothes were cleaned and
stored, what the clothes were called, a look at interpreting costume
when depicted in historical art and the laws made by royalty which governed
what the rest of the population could and couldn't wear, down to the
fabric and furs which could and couldn't be used and by whom. These
laws were known as Sumptuary Laws.
