Ooh, that's nice... I've no idea on the company, but if you get some do let us know how it goes, and what colour you go for.

I wonder if they can be persuaded to do short runs of a different pattern - it might look a bit silly if every C14th re-enactor in the UK suddenly turns up in the red and black print...

Bought quite a few gambies (and some soft kit) from them - as have other group members.

I'd definately recommend them.

They normally do ILHF if you want to see some of their stuff first-hand.

Hi everyone,

I don’t think it will be a problem, these fabrics have been printed as a one off project and will not be continued. At the moment this pattern is available in two colours:
- white with red pattern
- black with red pattern
http://www.medieval-market.com/details. ... ar=287&s=5
There is also "Charles de Blois" pattern available on beige linen http://www.medieval-market.com/details. ... ar=156&s=4
or green silk http://www.medieval-market.com/details. ... ar=286&s=4
and all of them are running out.
We are planning to run some new patterns. In the same manner as one off, "limited edition", not-to-be-reprinted projects. Re-enactors ourselves we know the pursuit for something original and different very well :)
As to short runs, it is of course possible but unfortunately the smaller order is the higher costs are. Of course it is free of charge to ask, negotiate and enquire. So if you got something on your mind we can look into it. Also any suggestions as to the future patterns are welcomed.

Thank you, Biro for a positive opinion. We have some more happy regular customers in UK. Missed ILHF this time but look forward to next edition.
