Request: A purple hooded cloak with golden edges and Celtic knot design From a picture send to me, I made this linen hooded cloak. It is 2 layers of fabric to hide and protect the back of the gold coloured embroidery. I'm not going to tell you how much time I spend on the 20 Celtic knots in here. The edge is from faux leather in gold.

Request: A servant/slave in ancient Roman times from Dacia. Together we gathered information about what this woman could have worn. I used a gauze linen and dyed it with madder (red and orange) and birch (green). They think they might have made 'cheap' green from mos and algae, and this was also thought of a very toxic process, so for my and my clients health I used birch with a touch of iron. I made a Chiton (dress), short Palla (draping scarf) and headscarf. All hand sewn with wool thread. You might be seeing her wandering around in Archeon Museum Park. Commissioned by Floortje Zwigtman.
