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 purse inspired by the extant piece from Toledo cathedral is richly embroidered by long legged cross stitch.

 Next page represents details of the belt.
