Tell us your dreams - we try to make them come true

Posted by Dennis vdM (Creator)

Dear (soon-to-be) supporters,

At Gewand Manufaktur, we currently work in shifts to get all the work done. We were overwhelmed with costume orders last summer, resulting in a loooooong to-do list on our workshop walls. More and more of those orders get a 'done' tick, which gives us a bit more space to breathe. Finally.

We are super happy with the support we have from you so far! And it seems that you want more: several of you asked for more models, additional eras, expansion to lady's clothing, silks/velvets/brocades...

Medieval brocade fabrics - available in 2019 if all goes as planned

We will get to each of those suggestions, as they are all possible to realize as soon as we have our workshop upgraded. Any fabric, in any model, in any size, for both men and women, in any quantity: we will be able to do it for you. But it is important for you to know that it takes a long time to draft the patterns that allow such flexibility: each of them needs to be designed, programmed, and tested. That is a process of weeks for each piece of clothing.

Especially lady's garments are challenging, because curves. The lady's body simply has more variables, in more places, with bigger differences. In order to get lady's garments ready for the Royal Needle packs, we need more development time in 2019. Thank you for your patience, ladies! In the mean time, you can get our fantastic linen and wool fabrics per meter, as well as hoods, underdresses, houppelandes, or a seat in the Courtyard to influence what we will develop next.

Houppelande for both men and women - add 25% of houppelande price for floor-length instead of knee-length.

We are very happy to have the first 12 models available for you during this Kickstarter. You see how many different reward packs it offers already. We will do our best to add a few more items during the Kickstarter: purses, headwear, and maybe even another full outfit for 13th century. As soon as a new item has been added as reward pack, we will let you know per update.

Is there anything in specific which you would like to see added to this Kickstarter? Let us know in the comments below, and maybe we can make it happen already!
