If speaking about body armor, the weight of a package (your order) depends on:
Your size. This is why I first ask for your measurements in your underarmor cloths sending the measurement chart while discussing the order.
The whole set of your armor (spaulders / tassets may be included).
The sort of steel (par example, the hardened spring steel armor will weight about 20% lighter than mild steel).
The destination (sending to USA / Europe / British Isles / Australia / Asia cost not the same of course).
Average weight of the cuirass is about 8-9 kg.
Shipping to EU is about 40-50€.
Shipping to Great Britain/Ireland is 60-65€.
Shipping to US/Canada is about 50-56€.
Shipping to Australia is about 115-128€.
Speaking about helmets/braces/greaves/equipment/etc., the weight of course will be less. The average helmet with chainmail aventail weights about 4-5 kg – so the postage cost will be about 30-35€ (to Germany par example).
Remember that this is the international mail. Prices surely differ from your local. But anyhow Russian Post is not too expensive. These prices of course include the tracking of your parcels. If you will need the Postal insurance, we have to discuss this personaly.

Part bird, part beast, the Sinmurw (Simurgh) is a creation of Sasanian art, although it was derived from more ancient Babylonian and Assyrian cultures, as well as from the sea-horse of Greek art.
When the silk was acquired in 1893, it was said to have come from the tomb of a bishop in Verdun Cathedral, France. Exotic patterned silks were desired not only by European rulers but also reverently valued for use in Christian rituals, such as wrapping relics, and as vestments. Many examples of imported silks have survived in European church treasuries and tombs.
As buyers have variable requirement we prefer to discuss the needed lenght personaly after you will choose the width and make the order. We also try to cut the fabric by whole medallions.
We reconstruct fabrics basing on historical sources.
