Parchment interlining

Postby Grymm » Wed Jun 11, 2014 9:47 am

From the Bodleian blog, on the use of cut up manuscripts for stiffening/interlining as discovered in some medieval garments.

Admittedly they are for dressing statues rather than people but the habit of using 'scrap' written/printed material as stiffening turns up, certainly for caps & hats, in 17thC through to 19thC.

Old parchment legal documents were re-used as skins for drums too.
