The Museum of Medieval Fabrics is mainly fed by the grave goods of the kings of Castile and infants during the XII, XIII and XIV centuries and that were buried in the monastery. The collection consists of three hundred pieces, although only 51 elements are exposed and which have been subjected to a laborious restoration and cleaning.
The clothes exhibited at the Museum of Medieval Fabrics were in a good condition thanks to the high quality of silk that used to make the clothes, which is not too surprising considering that the recipients of those clothes were high Castilian society .
This has permitted its conservation spite of the rot that existed in the graves from where they have come.
Stand out among the pieces of Museum of Medieval Fabrics, the Pendón of Navas de Tolosa from the early thirteenth century, which is a Almohad tapestry (masterpiece of Hispano-Muslim upholstery) and is the most valuable piece of the museum . This tapestry is considered as booty by Alfonso VIII in the victory of Las Navas de Tolosa to the Almohad Caliph Al-Nasir.
Another notable pieces from the Museum of Medieval Fabrics is the mantle of Fernando de la Cerda in the second half of the thirteenth century, with threads of gold and silver gimped. This mantle is a good example of medieval mantle of semicircular pattern.
Occurs the fact that the grave goods from Fernando de la Cerda is the best preserved of the tombs of the monastery, because that it was not looted during the Napoleonic invasion .
