During the five-year project, we engage with several major historical reconstruction projects in collaboration with craft experts, including The School of Historic Dress, skilled volunteer knitters and postgraduate students of Aalto University.


  • Seventeenth-century artisan male doublet made of mock-velvet, belonging to the Florentine water seller named Francesco Ristori, recorded in his post-mortem inventory of 1631.
  • Knitted woollen and silk stockings, based on both early modern written instructions as well as extant objects as sources.
  • Digital animation visualising how early modern male doublet was made and worn on the body.
