arb the World was started in 1999 by a historical reenactor who wanted to provide jobs for her stay-home-mom friends who were also reenactors.

We now offer a full line of historical and religious outfits which can be customized to your specifications. We also have a full line of pre-made items that are ready to ship. 

We specialize in inclusive sizing. We keep drawstring pants up to 70 inch waist in stock (in black)

Our clients include several religious orders, reenactment groups, larp, theatres, operas and people who like well-made custom made clothing.  We have stitched for several movies, plays, and 95 monk's robes for an opera.  

All of our items are stitched in California using as many local materials as possible.  Are rope sandals are made in West Virginia. 


We ship via USPS or UPS or DHL.  We carry a lot of product already made 'in stock' which we can ship right away. We usually ship daily.  Custom-made items could take a few weeks, it depends on the items and if we have to wait for fabric or notions, or to send it out to a particular stitcher.  We can usually expedite/rush orders, depending on the time of year and size of the order but we have to know.  Contact us if you have any questions or concerns about shipping times and a real person should reply to you within two business days.

Tracking information on shipments is sent via email and often ends up in spam folders. 


We can make private pages for your group to order from and have your customized clothes.
