Byzantine dress

Byzantine dress changed significantly over the thousand years of the territory, but was essentially traditional. The Byzantines liked colors and pattern, are made and export very richly decorative cloth, woven as well as embroidered for the high classes and resist-dyed and in print for the lower.

A diverse border or else frill round the edges were very ordinary, and lots of single stripe down the body or else around the higher arm are seen, often denotes class or rank. Taste for the center and higher classes follow the latest fashion at the Majestic Court. As in the West throughout the Middle Ages, clothes was very luxurious for the poor, who perhaps wore the same well-worn clothes almost all the time.
