Historical Padding & Clothing

Quiverstock Ltd is the UK’s leading manufacturer of quality gambesons, jacks and arming garments. We manufacture all our clothing in our UK based workshop and use only the best quality materials, such as pure linen and wool fabrics. Our historical range designs are inspired by historical references, it is important to us that historical interpreters, reenactors, film and TV companies get a garment that reflects the styles of the correct period for their needs.

Our quilted armour products such as gambesons, suspension liners, padded arming caps, mittens and lendeniers (leg harness suspension girdle) are made using a high quality batting containing a mix of clean cotton and bamboo fibres. As standard our padded armour is quilted by machine and has hand finished main seams, eyelets and buttons. Other arming clothing such as our arming doublet, which features the grande assiette sleeve first seen in Charles de Blois pourpoint, are also hand finished.

Our whole range is available to order entirely hand stitched for a higher level of historical authenticity. At Quiverstock whilst we do offer a range of stock sizes; which generally works well for small clothing, such as shirts, shifts, coifs and braies; we much prefer to make outer garments to measure for a better fit.
