So, I got some fine leather lying around and decided to make me some gloves.
I based them on images in the Maciejowski bible mainly.
Turns out the seam I used gives them a bit of a rough look.
I was pleasantly surprised that they keep warmth very good
The pattern is a mix of a historical one, and some tweaks here and there
Material: Fine leather, cotton thread. And they are hand-stitched.
The obligatory pics:
Here is a buckler from the Second Bulgarian Tsardom.The buckler itself is based on images from the Televangelion of Ivan-Alexander, and the patterns on various murals.
A knife made from black steel, with horn handle and brass decorations.
It looks really neat,and the brass really sticks out of the black handle.Unfortunately only one picture is aviable
These shields are characteristic for the Balkans and byzantine empire in the time of the Second Bulgarian Tsardom – XII-XIVth century.
Material – rawhide, plywood, linen, acrylic paints.
Here are some pairs of turnshoes, generally from the period XII-XIVth centuries.
All are made from leather(of course) and are hand-sewn.
A little purse based on various murals and wallpaintings from the time of the second Bulgarian Tsardom. Material is wool. And it is entirely hand-stitched.
All the pictures:
And another tunic. This one is completely hand-made, from 100% linen, with cotton threads.
I based it on a pattern of an Egyptian shirt from the early XIII-th. century(I think)
It turned a bit tighter than I expected, but nonetheless it’s very comfortable, especially during the summer.
This is a hood made from 100% wool. Machine sewed, and finished by hand. The dagging is also done by hand. It is based on a series of images, and a few finds, of the late XIV th. century. It was the first such hood I made, and I have found it very comfortable and useful, even in modern day environment.
