Hello!

A difficult request, I know...but, can anyone make, or know anyone who does make, historic persian kit?

Not looking to buy right now, but just putting out feelers. What i'm looking for is warriors kit, the soft kit (flowing robes etc) plus some armour, perhaps leather vambraces and body armour. Obviously this is man's kit, but being a female, I'd like it to have a feminine slant.

There doesnt seem to be any arabic kit online at all, so I know this is a long-shot!

You're going to have to name a period first, as always.

Maybe try Dr Dawson of Levantia- they do Byzantine throughout the UK but may be able to provide leads as armour and clothing manufacture seems similar.

Yes, of course, a period would help (oops)!

Probably sometime 1200's-1400's so it would suit crusading but also later wars such as Vlad vs. Mehmed.

Thanks for the link, btw
