Fabric of FictionSince dye and fabric are a major part of The Firelight Isle, I've tried to pay special attention to the clothing that the people of Azul wear. The following are a couple of designs that I produced after taking inspiration from clothes of various different cultures found in the Pitt Rivers Museum.
The driving idea behind the designs is to produce clothes with form and shape whilst using minimal tailoring. Each item of clothing is normally made by cutting and folding a single piece of fabric, with large toggles as the main method of securing the fabric, and thick, chorded hemming keeping the edges durable.
