Questions on clothing decoration in German wappenbuch
- I was doing some costume research and ran across this:
I started to notice that on many of the right hand sleeves have a
colorful addition. I've also noticed that it seems common to add some
kind of motto or other decoration on the right sleeve.
Does anyone know what this might be and where I might find more
information? Is it heraldic in nature I see that it is made up of
connected triangles of different colors, possibly with letters inside,
though I'm not quite making it out. I'm at a loss as to where to look
next, however, so any ideas on where to go looking for more
information would be appreciated.
