When researching what people wore in different times and places there are three sorts of evidence we can look at, textual descriptions, artistic representations and actual items that survive from the period of interest. The Museum Boijmans van Beuningen has made photos of a number of extant items available on its website.
Here, for your researching pleasure, are the items relevant to the period that this blog covers:
- All items between 1470 and 1530
- Belt ‘satchels’ (2 of them)
- Shoes (3 items)
- Belts and Belt mounts (7 items)
I also went through all of their images for this period, now posted to my pinterest boards.
