"In 1600 in Venice, the tabard characterized the class of simple citizens called "da tabarro". The nobles used the toga. The young patricians liked this garment, so practical especially for their nocturnal adventures, that for a period the Venetian government tried to limit this fashion with serious sanctions."


Monica Daniele produces tabards based on the memories of the Venetian Casanova, who was the ambassador of the tabard to the courts of half of Europe. Her models faithfully reflect the shape and spirit of the historical garment (full wheel, sleeveless, single closure at the neck, absolute simplicity) and are all handmade with fine fabrics. Monica Daniele's tabards can have different lengths and colors precisely because of their adherence to historical tradition, as evidenced by the paintings of Longhi, Tiepolo and Canaletto. We remember, however, that the classic model is a cape with or without a hood, dark cloth or scarlet in winter and white silk in summer. The tabard is an important garment in Venice, back in vogue in recent years and worn not only during the carnival, as was the case in ancient times with masks. Recently Monica Daniele has been the active promoter of the "Gran Liston in Tabarro", a walk of fans of this garment even coming from other regions of Italy who parade from San Marco to Rialto, arriving at San Polo to pay homage and make this tradition known.
