This ruff (also called lace collar) will splendidly complete your renaissance costume. This model was made after a template from 16th century, when it was an essential and distinctive part of both men’s´ and women’s wardrobe. It is nicely trimmed with lace. It is available in two basic colours that can be well combined with most kinds of renaissance costumes: black and white. The ruff can be tied up at the rear.
Please measure your neck circumference using a tape measure, measure around your neck, keeping two fingers between the measuring tape and your neck. All measurements are in centimetres and inches. If your exact measurements aren't shown, choose the next size up for the best fit.
If you cannot take the ruff to the cleaner's, you can wash it by your own in lukewarm water (30°C). Take washing powder or gel and a soft brush. Avoid using excessive strength during the cleaning. After rinsing the ruff, leave it drain and dry.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
