These robes were transfigured by expert stitch-witches over a period of several days. The process is complex, requiring first adequately supple Brazilian Rosewood, which is cut as thin as possible at angles to best display the grain. In a series of intricate spellworks, the wood is then transfigured into fabric which retains the rose-like scent of fresh rosewood. Poor spellcasting unfortunately often renders robes that when worn, will regress to being a tree, trapping the wearer inside forever.
