About This Blog

My current research obsession is centered around purses and pouches from the European Middle Ages, and the accompanying hardware and passementerie. It is my hope to not only study extant items but also learn via reconstructive experiments; these will be limited for the most part to the textile components, however in the future I hope to explore the production of the metal frames.

In the interim

I know I haven't posted much here since I arrived in Prague. This is due partially to work keeping me more than busy on the weekdays, partially to the absence of my embroidery supplies which are still in NY, and partially to not finding any more purse or purse-related resources since the last museum I posted about.

So I invite my readers to read my other blog, Tristán in Europe, in the meantime.
