Medieval clothing made on site
The workers of the castle of Guédelon are dressed in tunics and tabards of medieval inspiration woven, spun, and dyed in the workshops of the construction site. The spindle-spun wool comes from the site's sheep, while the mainly vegetable dyes are made from madder, woad, dyers' broom, or elderberry.
