The World Of Khoras - Civilization - Merchandise

Clothing

There is an enormous variety of garments worn by the different cultures across the lands of Khoras. Most of them share some similarity to each other. While the Normidians, Drakkellians and Imperials of Rukemia might call their tunics by different names, they are all essentially the same article of clothing. They vary slightly in cut and style and fastenings.

The tables below include examples of garments with descriptions, but these tables are by no means exhaustive. They are for reference and additional variations should be extrapolated from these examples as necessary.

Likewise, price and weights are approximations, but any individual item can vary considerably. Obviously, clothing varies a great deal in quality and fashion. Clothing can be shoddily made (which is typical of peasants and serfs who often make their own clothing). Clothing can also by finely tailored by expert craftsmen and might include elaborate stitchwork, rare and valuable materials and additional ornamentation. The type of cloth often influences price greatly. In Ithria, wool, leather and linen are common. Silk exists, but is produced only in the Padashan Empire. Hence, silk commands great prices in Ithria or Aggradar, but is less expensive in Qeshir.
