Here at Brighid Designs we like to take a gentle stroll through history and fantasy, meeting many interesting and varied people along the way. Over the years this has lead to us meeting all sorts of lovely folks, and working in many centuries. We have outfitted everyone from nobility to the poorest members of the parish, and we always aim to please.
Cloak'd & Dagger'd
Cloak’d & Dagger’d is a small costuming business specialising in quality handmade period clothing to order for any occasion. I supply reenactors, museums and productions around the world with historical costume ranging from Roman to Victorian, though 15th and 16th century garments are my speciality.
We are fascinated by historical clothing and its construction. We love beautiful natural fabrics, and the functional detailing that fits each garment for its purpose.
We base our patterns on historical styles but we design them to suit 21st century people, sourcing quality fabric to ensure our products will stand the test of time.
We make these unique garments ourselves, steadily adding to our range and continuing to develop the styles we sell.
Goodwives are sisters Sarah Thursfield and Ruth Gilbert.
Since 1996, Historic Enterprises, Inc. has been dedicated to bringing an unparalleled collection of the highest quality reproduction items to historic sites and historical enthusiasts worldwide. With wares ranging from armour to pottery, clothing, leather, horn and woodware, cutlery and more, we want to be the “one-stop shop” for all your reenactment needs.
The Lace Guild
The Lace Guild is an Educational Charity - we aim to educate the public in the craft of lacemaking, its history and use, promote a high standard of lacemaking through education & encourage design, development and professional presentation of lace.
I research and make garments for the 14th, 15th and 16th century, using period techniques. I have now expanded the range from mid-thirteenth to early 17th century. I focus on clothing of the common people in England.
All garments are made by hand, by me, and here in England.

We are happy to make finds from any period of time so long as we have enough detail to be able to work from. We work to a high standard making finds for, reenactors, museums and others. We are always happy to take commissions.
