reation of authentic clothes and equipment often requires archaeological evidence and other historical sources to reveal what was in use at the time. We use period paintings, drawings and patterns from reconstructions of well-known "schnittbuch" and consult with historians and other experts, such as tailors and smiths.

Most pieces of our clothing, armoury and other equipment are made by our members, employing different methods, techniques and approaches in order to continuously develop and watchfully improve our inventory. We try to attain a high level of authenticity regarding fabrics and tailoring, but allow the use of modern inventions and materials mostly to improve security, or substitute details that can not be acquired otherwise.
