Bernuthsfeld Tunic

800 - 1000 CE

Similar to: Hedeby Tunic




This shirt dates back to roughly the 8th century. The design included an unusual trapezoidal neck opening and a decorative band around the breast. Notably, this garment was found to have been patched from 45 pieces of 20 different fabrics; a riot of 9 distinct weave patterns and various colors. Either the wearer was very poor, or this tunic was well loved!

While this exact design does not appear in the Burgschneider catalog, many tunics with a slitted base will wear in a similar fashion either as an undergarment or outerwear.
