About this book

Protective Clothing has been compiled from the artefacts in the IBRA Museum Collection. These have been assembled from all over the world. To complement the individual items additional materials and illustrations have been used, all of which have been sourced from IBRA’s unique photographic, journal and book collections.

Protective Clothing gives readers an insight into how the beekeeper’s clothing has changed over the centuries, and how it varies around the world. The improvement in textiles, the advancement in technology and the changes in fashion have all influenced how the beekeeper dresses – sometimes with amusing consequences!
