Embroidery at the Rijksmuseum


The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has a new online exhibition: Accessorize! with a selection of the (dress) accessories in their collections. All items in the exhibition are post medieval, but very worth your time!
In the image above are two pairs of embroidered slippers and a embroidered purse.
