Rich people could afford clothes made from fine: wool, linen or silk. Their clothes were decorated with jewels and embroidered with gold thread:
Clothes were sometimes stuffed with a mixture of horsehair and rags called bombast to make people's shoulders and thighs look bigger. Some people wore a ruff. This was a large, decorative frill made from lace worn around their neck.
Poor people wore simple, loose-fitting clothes made from woolen cloth. They often put a cloth bonnet on their heads.
