I’m off doing things… exciting things!

You might remember that a while ago, I posted about having a project for a reproduction of the tunic worn by the man from Bernuthsfeld.

Well, it’s time to get the project into the next stage – which means I’m getting to see the original, and will be starting work on the actual tunic-making together with my colleague. So I’ll be off doing exciting things to cloth for the next few days, and thus be taking a break from blogging – I will be back on October 16.

Meanwhile, I will leave you here with a picture of the fabrics that were woven for the tunic and a small mantle-like cloth:

Fabrics woven for the Bernuthsfeld-Project - lots and lots of different ones, many of them just small patches...

And just because I have them, here are a few more pictures of some bits, close-up:

It’s going to be so much fun to dye a selection of the fabrics, then cut everything up, roughen them a bit to simulate use-wear, and stitch them together into the tunic!

    Oh, wow. Those fabrics! Were all of them custom-woven or is there any way to get hold of any of them?

  2. Those fabrics look gorgeous. Are they custom weaves? And is there any way to get hold of some of them?

    All these fabrics are custom-woven by hand, as close as we could get them to the originals without having to get hand-spun yarns for all of them. Some are partly hand-spun threads, as there was no suitable machine-spun yarn available, and part of the threads were custom spun in a small mill.
    If you want to order similar fabrics, you can email me and I’ll give you the weaver’s contact data.
