I started weaving, because I really find it soothing and I was missing good trims and belts for my historical designs.They also do very well as handfasting straps.
I make cotton and woollen weaves. There are ready made belts in the Etsy shop. You can also request custom designs.
Request: A servant/slave in ancient Roman times from Dacia.
Together we gathered information about what this woman could have worn. I used a gauze linen and dyed it with madder (red and orange) and birch (green). They think they might have made ‘cheap’ green from mos and algae, and this was also thought of a very toxic process, so for my and my clients health I used birch with a touch of iron.
I made a Chiton (dress), short Palla (draping scarf) and headscarf. All hand sewn with wool thread.
All the available capes can be purchased on Etsy.
The Handmaiden dress is currently the most wanted dress in my shop. I keep a steady stock of different fabrics and styles. These dresses are resizeable and can be used for many occasions. LARP, Renfaire, Festival, Weddingdress or Bridesmaids and of course for COSplay. It is a very sustainable dress, because it doesn’t matter which sizes you are, it will fit.
Request: Victorian style coat that withstands very cold October wind in the UK for a LARP event.
Materials: Purple velvet jeans, padded lining, extra windproof lining. Filigree metal buttons. Embroidery by Barbwire & Roses.
