Silk robe
after Rogier van der Weyden
 
 

Period: around 1450

This robe from 15th century has been crafted for an English reenactment group. It is made of precious silk damask from the Venetian weaving mill Luigi Bevilacqua, which today still hand-produces on historic looms following its own original pattern-designs.

The Portrait of Isabella of Portugal by the Early Netherlandish painter Rogier van der Weyden (1400-1464) served as model for the realization of the dress.


This houppelande suit has the typical raised waist, the wide sleeves and the fine pleated skirt. Hem and collar are made of 'ermine'. Similar to Rogier's painting we have decided for a black belt of cotton damask with cubed ornaments.

The undergarment consists of hand-woven plain-colored silk.
