How We make Our Clothing
In order to...
...ensure maximum authenticity we use only 100% linen and high quality woollen fabrics for our clothing production. Standard clothing is machine stitched, but we hand stitch buttonholes and use handmade fabric buttons, to provide authentic historical look of garments.
We also offer fully hand stitched clothing using authentic medieval stitching styles. To maximise stitch strength we use special construction methods. We use only linen thread for hand stitching . As it was done in past ages, all our clothes are made for individual measurements; check how to take measurements in How to Order section. However, obviously there is also an option to provide clothes in the standardized sizes, check our size chart in How to Order section. For re-enactors who require complete authenticity we currently offer hand woven textiles and hand stitching.
How we make our tents
We sew our tents using only linen and cotton canvas. All the fabrics come in plain or impregnated version. Impregnation guarantees that tents are water-resistant and rot-resistant. Owing to many years of experience we have established chain of trusted suppliers and developed constructions that are practical and as close to historical sources as possible. We use only natural materials, historically correct in details. For orthodox re-enactors we can provide even hand stitched tents. All our tents come complete and ready to use, for the production of poles we use hard wood like ash, birch, beech and others.
What you will get along with your tent:
- wooden poles and other necessary elements
- cotton bags for transport,
- set of pegs (wooden or steel pegs),
- natural hemp ropes (synthetic hemp ropes
available as an option with no extra charge)
*Sheds and tarps go without wood unless you specify differently
We customize tents for you!
Although there is a variety of sizes and shapes available in regular offer we can still produce a special model for you. You can also choose colours of fabrics. Another option to create it even more unique is hand-painting in historical patterns or your own ones.
We produce furniture based on historical models. For the production, we use mainly oak wood or ash, sometimes alder in cheaper versions. In addition to furniture from the standard offer, we also realize special orders. Our order realizations can be found below.
