The Consolidated Clothing and Costumes Archives provides web support for several collections of garments associated, primarily, with university and professional theatrical costume programs. It is an extension of the Costar web archive that was used for several years by the graduate program in Costume Production associated with the Department of Dramatice Art at UNC in Chapel Hill NC and the PlayMakers Repertory Company. Costar features a remarkable collection of nineteenth century garments from Europe and the United States. In the initial release of Cloaks in the fall of 2008 Costar was joined by Nowes Ark, a collection of garments from outside the western tradition .
