Reduced VAT rate in Germany:

Germany is reducing VAT rate from 19% to 16% until the end of 2020. To get the tax reduction as discount, enter the code MWST (short for German Mehrwertsteuer, in case you're wondering) in the field discount code in your shopping basket.

Please note that sending of goods outside of Germany may be delayed, restricted or impossible due to the Corona Pandemic. Please feel free to check with me whether sending to you is possible or not by email or the contact form. 

For posting to the non-EU Countries Australia, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand, German Post is currently charging an extra crisis supercharge, which will be added to regular postage fees.

I am a freelance textile archaeologist, with a lot of passion for historical textiles and a wide-ranging portfolio. I am offering materials and tools for historical textile techniques in my online shop, as well as presentations and demonstrations, workshops and courses, and reconstruction of historical garments or textiles for museums. On top of this, I have three books published, and occasionally I find the time to develop a (modern) knitting pattern.

On these pages, you can find information about the goods and services that I offer - and, of course, the online shop itself. If you read German and would like to get occasional information about new things in the shop, you are more than welcome to subscribe to my newsletter (which comes about once a month).

For those wishing to read more of my writing, take a look at my blog where I post in English, about various topics, and from Monday to Friday.

I hope you will enjoy discovering more about the things I do and the things I offer. If you have questions, feedback or suggestions, please contact me - I am always happy to hear from you!
