I am now offering hand painted linen garb for SCA combat and general purpose. This is a great way to display heraldry or personalize garments and even coordinate with shields and banners. I make tabards, surcoats, tunics, pants and more.
Since that many of my clients are fighters, I build pieces in either heavy weight or canvas weight linen for maximum durability. Linen is comfortable to wear, even in the heat, comes in a broad range of colors and is machine washable. Better yet, it’s period!
I piece together fabric sections for major heraldic field divisions or parti-colored garments. All seams are finished and certain seams are reinforced to help take a beating. All the garb is custom made, so all sizes are available with custom features.
Using quality artist’s acrylics, fabric paints and inks, I carefully hand paint each design. It’s amazing how well the paint holds up over time, even with machine washing.
