Castile Lady


 The clothing is inspired by the manuscript Libro de los Juegos (made for King Alfonso in 1283) and by the artifacts preserved in Museo de las Telas Medievales de Burgos. The garment consists of a striped pellote, a red saya encordada, a camisa margomanda (embroidered smock), typical castilian headdress (capiello castellano), the belt and embroidered purse. The striped pellote is made according to the extant piece belonging to the Eleanor of Castile, Queen of Aragon (+1244). Decorative gold stripe can be seen on the piece of Enrique I.

 Next pages represent a saya, a smock and details of the belt and purse.
