Clothing

All clothing is carefully researched to represent the desired time period. Our focus is 18th century rendezvous and Native American wear and accouterments; however, orders from other time periods are welcome. Leather clothing includes but not limited to painted Naspkapi coats, quilled and or painted Metis coats, leather leggings, vests, shirts, skirts, or strap dresses. Linen or time period appropriate printed cotton shirts are also available as well as trade wool breech clouts, wrap around skirts, jackets, strap dresses, or match coats, all with or without silk ribbon work.
