Pure and authentic fabrics
Classic Fabrics offers a broad range of fabrics, yarns and leg wraps. In the first place meant for the reproduction of historic clothing. But I bet there are so much more things you can make out of it for all day use! In our assortment you will find high quality and pure fabrics such as 100% wool, linen, or a mix of both and even cotton. Our fabrics are selected with care and only the highest quality is included in our range. Every single piece of fabric is tested on composition before entering our shop. This guarantees a constant quality and reliable selection of fabrics that are suitable for making clothes for re-enactment of different periods. In the case that the fabric contains a little plastic such as polyester or acryl, we say so in the subscription and the price will be more attractive too.
Natural and historical dyeing process
Throughout history, people have dyed their fabrics and textiles using common and uncommon locally available materials. This varied from leaves from all sorts of plants, roots, berries and tree bark, to vegetable materials such as onion skins and walnut shells. Tree fruits were also used, such as acorns or chestnuts. Even insects, such as cochineal were used. Each raw dye material resulted in a different color. Also, a combination of different dye materials was often used to obtain a certain color. We try to simulate this dyeing process as historically accurate as possible. Classic Fabrics avoids any use of chemical additives or dyeing materials.
