Haithabu Dress

1000 - 1100 CE

Alternative Names: Haithabu / Hedeby

The Haithabu or Hedeby dress is among the most recognizable trappings of the Viking era, and is dated around the 10th century. The style appears in various famous art depictions of Viking women. It consists of a long underdress and strapped apron dress sometimes called a Hangerock. The apron dress consisted of a long back strap and a shorter front strap on each shoulder, clasped together with their iconic oval brooches. These brooches signified wealth, status, and rank amongst Viking women, and were often accompanied by elaborate beaded necklaces

The Burgschneider design uses unbroken shoulder straps and sizing side straps to make wear easier and form fitting.
