Replica Textiles & Period Costume Work

rayed cloth produced with genuine madder, woad and weld dyed yarn set against a background of undyed natural brown

Very fine sett (~20 ends/cm) Z/Z 2-2 broken diamond twill in undyed natural white; far more accurately replicating the luxury Birka twills than most coarse chunky woollen diamond twills available from elsewhere

Viking

Hand sewn stiffened and interlined leather doublet

Tudor/Stuart

Narrow woven herringbone wool winningas tape commonly used in the early medieval period as leg wraps or puttees

Early Medieval

When approached by a Living History society to affordably reproduce a mixed batch of generic 'home made' russets, to avoid all their members looking as if they were dressed in matched uniforms from the same factory made bolt of cloth, we were able to produce a range of hues from the undyed woollen yarns I have access to

Multi-period

2-1 twill in undyed naturally grey woollen yarn, sparsely used throughout most of history but particularly common in the period just after the Norman Conquest

Post Conquest

Linen lined coarse woollen tippet hood with long lirilpipe

Medieval

Fine sett Z/S 2-2 diamond twill in contrasting undyed brown and white yarns; copied for a client from a find from Hadrian's wall but suitable for much of the pre-Norman Conquest period

Coarse kempy undyed russet; these basic woollen fabrics were common through most of history although the Z/S spin combination warp and weft may make this particular example most appropriate for period before the Norman conquest

Multi-period

2-2 Broken diamond twill produced from undyed natural white and genuine woad dyed yarns, used across much of early history up until the Norman Conquest

Pre-Conquest

Detail from an embroidery design completed in naturally dyed wool yarns coloured with madder and weld

Coarse medley russet produced in undyed natural black and brown very kempy yarns. A common low status cloth used through much of history, but in this instance produced for monastic robes

Multi-period

Rayed cloth produced with genuine woad dyed yarn set against a background of undyed natural grey

Medieval

2-2 Broken diamond twill produced from subtly contrasting tones of kempy undyed naturally grey yarn, used across much of early history up until the Norman Conquest

Pre- Conquest

Details from a Viking tunic made in madder dyed fine weave kreuzkoper twill with decoration completed in naturally dyed wool yarns coloured with madder, woad and weld

Viking

Coarse sett Z/S 2-2 twill in pale undyed natural grey kempy yarn  representative of much low status home spun/woven cloth in the early medieval period

Early Medieval

Superficially identical to the previous Z/S 2-2 twill fabric but slightly finer sett and woven using undyed naturally grey kempy fleece  spun to a fractionally higher grist, representative of much low to medium status home spun/woven cloth in the early medieval period

Early Medieval

Replica of an Anglo Saxon rayed cloth produced with genuine madder dyed yarns against background of undyed natural brown

Anglo-Saxon

Hand sewn linen lined natural un-dyed grey russet breeches

Film props.

I supplied textiles and wardrobe accessories to the Oscar winning costumier Jacqueline Durran working on the film version of Macbeth Size: n/a

Costume

A lot of prop making is driven by changes of plan resulting in tight deadlines to get stuff in front of the camera without holding up a shoot. However, when fully functional 'olde worlde' tools were required for detailed close up film work of a 'pseudo medieval' stone mason at work I'd have preferred a reasonable amount of time to either source genuinely old tools or properly manufacture quality replicas of what was required. In this instance I had to drop everything and improvise quickly to go from initial confirmation of what was wanted, through finding suitable raw materials, to newly made tools and on to antiquing them in little more than three hours. So although fundamentally simple items I was pleased when they both met the director's approval in terms of aesthetics and functioned as well as the mason's modern tools. Size: approx. 300mm long
