23312decoration for non-silk garments
- Jan 5, 2008I know that a variety of embellishments, from woven patterns, either damasks
or woven color like plaids or stripes, to dying, spot color via resist dye,
block printing, etc and embroidery were used on silk fabrics during the
15th-16th centuries, but what about fabrics and garments made out of bast fibers
like hemp/ramie, etc? Most, if not all, of the fabric embellishing techniques
used on silk are feasible for these types of fabrics, but do we have
evidence that they were used?
