Religious Clothing Page
http://www.costumes.org/pages/religious_costume.htm#Pagan/Wiccan page. Pagan
clothing links are a bit hard to find.

http://www.serve.com/shea/germusa/trachten.htm but I've had a German reenactor
tell me it has lots of details horribly oversimplified. At
http://www.costumes.org/pages/ethnolnk.htm#Western Europe I have a bunch of
German traditional dress links too that might help.

- Well, Tara, I don't have my website up yet, but I do
happen to be getting a website in exchange for one of
my robes, so I will be sure to let you know when it is
up and running!
Pagan clothes are hard to find. In fact, what got my
business off the ground was a happenstance occurance
at a pagan camping festival a few weeks ago. I
complimented a woman on her robe and said I would like
to copy it, since I had been looking for years for a
ritual robe friendly to nursing mothers. The woman is
an owner of a local metaphysical store, and
commissioned six nursing ritual robes from me on the
spot. She said she had never thought about nursing
moms not having nursing friendly ritual robes, so I am
looking forward to the response from the community. I
am going to check out that link you provided; I have
not seen it on the site before (but there is just so
much good stuff there I never get very far!)
