Medieval Braided Tunic Ailrik , short-sleeved, black
This tunic is ideal for the portrayal of many North and Central European peoples from the Migration Period (Völkerwanderung
) to the High Middle Ages.
It is made from cotton fabric and finished with an appliquéd border/braid at the neckline. The border's plait pattern is based on the archaeological find B23 from Birka
. The round neckline has a slit on the front. The split neck can be worn open or closed with a fibula or brooch, according to your preferences. So-called gores
(wedge-shaped pieces of fabric) inserted into the side seams give the tunic a nice flare from the hip down. As both front and back panels have a slit in the middle, the tunic is also suitable for horse riding.
For an authentic look, we recommend you to wear this tunic with a leather belt.

As authentic as possible, as modern as necessary!
This Viking tunic is part of Battle-Merchant's line of period clothing and medieval garments for men, women and children. From the first sketch to the last stitch, this garment was planned, designed and handcrafted with particular attention to detail. Our clothes are modeled (sometimes accurately, sometimes less so) on historical examples, grave finds and original museum pieces where they exist. We always endeavour to keep the necessary adjustments to today's standards, e.g. in terms of size and manufacturing process, to a minimum. Just see for yourself!
