If you wanted the best fencing Master from Italy, you wanted Ridolfo Capferro! Among the rules set down for fencing lay his treatise, “Great Representation of the Art and Use of Fencing”. We are really excited about this phase of the project – translating these beautiful images into textile designs. Have a favorite image you’d like to see? Let us know!
Our version of the classic men’s necktie updated in our Cappoferro print. Inspired by with Ridolfo Capferro’s richly illustrated treatise “Great Representation of the Art and Use of Fencing” from 1610.
As a clothing and textile designers, who are also students of historical sword fighting, SwordGeek’s Boutique brings together the things we love most!
