Have you been to a Renaissance Faire recently? You've never attended one? I love getting dressed up in my colorful renaissance garb and spending a weekend or two at a Renaissance Faire or an SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) War! Besides, Faires, Wars and LARP gatherings are so much more fun when you are dressed in period clothing.

Designs by Kate is your source for the Renaissance clothing and accessories (commonly known as garb) you will need to enhance your experience. We can supply you with cloaks, capes, doublets, jerkins, shirts, tunics, breeches, leines, cowls, flat hats, tams, coifs, monk's ensembles, robes, snoods, buttons & clasps, ostrich feathers and feather cockades, as well as books about Renaissance clothing and general knowledge of the Renaissance period.
