All rumors are false; we do not have any connection to intelligence services. We owe our original police, army, border guards and NVA (East German Armed Services) uniforms, as well as our rich inventory of historic uniforms, alone to our passion for collecting and archiving. Therefore a uniform collection unique in Germany was created. Quentin Tarantino’s film success INGLORIOUS BASTERDS and Philipp Kadelbach’s TV success, OUR MOTHERS, OUR FATHERS benefited from our inventory of Wehrmacht uniforms. We can offer a complete and detailed collection of work wear from the last centuries; with us you will find everything that is and was worn in civil services, professions and offices, either as scout, fireman or blacksmith, as mailman, construction worker or railway official. Over the decades, we have compiled a collection of work wear with an eye for historical detail including original uniforms and medals, badges and weapons such as rapiers, daggers, and swords

Do you have a catalogue?

Rather than leafing through a catalogue, you can view a selection of costumes in our digital showroom. You are welcome to visit us at any time by scheduling an appointment. Consultation by telephone or video is also possible. Feel free to contact us.

What kind of costumes do you have available in your collection?

Theaterkunst has a stock of over 10 million costumes from all eras and time periods. From antiquity to the present day, at Theaterkunst you can be sure to find just what you need for your project. We also have a large collection of historical and contemporary uniforms from a range of countries, and an extremely well-stocked workwear department. In addition to costumes, you will also find a wide variety of clothing for your film crew, ranging from thermal jackets to moonboots, wetsuits, oilskin raincoats and much more.

Do you also select costumes for customers?

We are happy to advise you individually, either on location at Theaterkunst, or via email or phone. If you can’t come by in person, we will charge you a pre-determined fee for putting together the requested costumes.

What documents can I fill out ahead of time?

In order to be able to borrow costumes from us, the production company must cover all associated costs. We have also prepared a production information sheet that you are welcome to fill out in advance. It is available here: download center

Can I simply stop by?

We always look forward to your visit. To ensure that a staff member is available to take care of your needs, we ask that you make an appointment to schedule your visit. If you wish, we can reserve a fitting room for you.

Can you send us pictures of costumes?

Customers who are not able to come by for an in-person visit can also commission us to put costumes together. We will then send you pictures of the costumes. This service can take two to three working days, as each costume is individually configured based on request. Please contact us to discuss cost.

Mit dem Blick für historische Details haben wir neben der Arbeitskleidung über Jahrzehnte eine Sammlung von Originaluniformen und Orden, Abzeichen und Blankwaffen wie Degen, Dolche und Schwerter zusammengetragen. Sollte Ihnen trotzdem noch etwas fehlen, können wir es dank unserer Bibliothek und unseres Bildarchivs jederzeit originalgetreu rekonstruieren. Gern beraten wir Sie!
