Postby OutOnAWing » Mon Oct 03, 2011 7:30 pm

we are display falconer and we have dabbled in a few medieval fayres and now wish to go abit more authentic.We have been told we are 14th century, so does anyone have any idea of what clothing a falconer and his wife would wear clothes wise.Any books websites for ideas would be great.

If you are going to make your own then cannot recommend The Medieval Tailor's Assistant by Sarah Thursfield too highly. If you are going to buy in then suggest you visit either the International Living History Fayre (ILHF) or The Original Reenactors' Market (TORM) which can be googled to meet makers.

You will need to do some reading on period falconery and research the rank and type of clothes. Remember the falconer is a member of staff who looks after the falcons which are flown by the higher ups in the context of a noble household. If you use google scholar you can probably track down books on the subject.

Do your research before you make/order clothes as mistakes will be expensive.

Wishing you the best of luck!
