We help create your historical wardrobe. We manufacture underwear, outerwear, headgear and accessories for both re-enactment and living history as well as themed weddings, museums, theater and film.

We, the tailors of Robes & Cloaks, are active re-enactors and manufacture all our clothes ‘historically accurate’. From the early Middle Ages, Napoleonic, WW I, the Interbellum and until WW II.

We use our extensive knowledge of historical clothing in all we make. Our knowledge comes from various sources: studies of medieval art, historical patterns and we participate in many re-enactment events. We supplement this with knowledge and experience of people in our network such as historians, fellow re-enactors and costume makers.

We put this knowledge into everything we manufacture. We are also skilled in many handicraft techniques such as embroidery, lace spools, sprangs, frivolities and more. Such a handmade style element makes your Robes and Cloaks garment unique.

When designing your clothes, your requests are in the center of our designs. We discuss with you your imagination, which style elements and accessories are appropriate and how you would like it to look like.

The clothing is custom made in our atelier. How to measure? If you have them, you can email us, in other cases we will take your measurements: in our studio, at your home, via Skype, in the museum or on bivouac. It can also happen that we insert fitting moments in the meantime. This way we ensure that your purchase fits you well.

Our products are standard finished by hand, which gives your purchase a historically accurate appearance. The further finishing touch is entirely up to you: do you want to have decoration on it in the form of embroidery? Hand-worked lace? A frivolity? That is possible! This makes every Robes and Cloaks garment unique.

Are you organizing a re-enactment or living history event and would you like to invite us or are you interested in a masterclass / workshop? Please contact us.
