Do you ever think about the textile histories of fictional lands/universes?
I honestly thought I was the only one who ever did this. Thank you so much random person!
i’ve seen this going across my dash but i keep forgetting that i have an answer.
yes! usually just to the extent of “what’s the climate like, what fibers are available, what dyes are available, are they trying to keep warm or keep the sun off or what?”
but in the kastor books i’ve actually worked up a big file about kyri textile traditions, with sketches and everything. mainly because kastor knits, and it’s one of his few connections with his culture while he’s exiled.
My DM gets so annoyed when I point out that the desert nomads are trading hand-woven textiles and I’m like, where did they get the materials? What are the clothes made of? And the DM’s like it doesn’t matter will you please touch the glowing magical memory sphere already
