Refashioning the Renaissance database includes clothing and textile items that belonged to ordinary families in the early modern period, and it is the biggest European early modern textile and clothing database created so far.

The database includes altogether over 90.000 items from Italy (Siena, Florence, Venice) and Denmark (Helsingør), collected by the Refashioning the Renaissance project in 2017-20. This data provides an important basis for our analysis, both in terms of our publications as well as our hands-on experiments. The data is open access, please click “search the database” above or visit the database via this link:
