ageofthecotehardie, which is *just* after your time period; still, it
might be helpful to you. Not sure why there's not one here...
As for Naalbinding, have a look at their yahoo group archives; they
talked about post-viking finds a few months back. I remember someone
mentioning French (or Italian? drat my steal sieve-like memory!)
mittens from the 14th century.

yahoo group, I must seriously APOLOGIZE to folks for not going back
to them and re-organizing them in such a way that does not so clearly
imply that some sources are "all bad" and others are "all good".
That's simply misleading, I'm afraid. Shades of grey exist
Still, there are some *excellent* sources listed there, so have fun
browsing. And, if folks can, please add your own citations with
relevant comments. Incidentally, that list is not confined to
clothing/accessories -- it covers all aspects of European life in the
mid-to-late 14th century and early 15th century. Books/journal
articles/etc. on any pertinent subject would be welcomed.
If you do choose to browse those databases, please pay attention to
the comments written for each source, for an idea of their strong or
weak points... I'll eventually re-org those things in a more
harmonious and big-picture fashion...
PS -- I recommend that you read _Le Roman de la Rose_ (Romance of the
Rose) for a peak at social ideals/interactions as well as tidbits
about dress (much is symbolic, but it's worth knowing anyway) in mid-
late 13th century France.

You're right. We really should put together a database of references
recommended and not recommended. Great idea!
There is a database section on the authentic groups site that does already have a reading list. Go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Authentic_SCA/database
