Survey of Byzantine Clothing Class

At Clothier’s Seminar, hosted by the Shire of Cúm an Iolair, I had the opportunity to teach a class on Byzantine clothing from about the 6th century to about the 14th century.

This will eventually be a series of posts at some point, but until then, please enjoy my handout (with a very large thank you to my Byzanbestie, Anna, for her handout on patterns).

You can access my handout here.

Of course, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

    Your handout is fantastic! I’m a novelist writing in the 7th century – have bought/read every book I can find trying to make sense of the clothing. So much conflicting info. Hah! Thanks so much for this concise resource! (Also INTJ – heh.)
