Welcome to The House of Sculthorpe, an online store specialising in materials for historical costumes. We sell to the historical reenactment, LARP, TV, film and theatre markets. Our aim is to offer materials for all eras up until the 1st World War, for all different status’ and for all different budgets! Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.
How to navigate the site
The fabrics are split into categories of the major fibres of yesteryear. Not all of the fabrics in each category are actually made of these fibres – they are there as a guide of what the fibre would have been back in the day. Budget alternatives will be in the category they are simulating, not what they actually are. For example you will find cotton velvet under ‘silk’ because it is simulating silk velvet. Certain things you will find in multiple categories, at the moment these are a few cottons and cotton/linen mixes, as they have a linen look about them, while actually being a different fibre that would have been found in a later era.
Unless specifically stated our materials have not been made for historical costumes, we are merely bringing together what we feel are suitable products. All the information provided is written to the best of our knowledge and is to be used as a guide only. If you feel you have any contradictory knowledge then please contact us as we welcome any input to ensure the best service possible.
As part of our expanding range of services we now offer custom banner painting on request. For more details see the ‘Services’ section, found under ‘Information’, and email for a quote at email@example.com.
