    Description

    This simple cotta or tunic made from fir green wool (chemically dyed) is reconstructed based in the finds from Haithabu (or Hedeby) in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Haithabu was an important settlement of danish vikings between the 8th and 11th century and is one of the biggest archeological sites for viking artefacts. It is supposed to be worn over a matching linen cotta.

    The Haithabu cotta consists of front and back panels with middle and side gussets in the a little over knee-length skirt part. The sleeves are made from one piece with a rounded sleeve head and no underarm gusset. This sleeve form is specific to the finds in Haithabu in early medieval times. In Birka (another important archeological site for vikings) the sleeves are constructed without a rounded sleeve head.

    The visible seams are hand stitched with a green coloured linen thread. The invisible seams are machine sewn.
    On request all seams can be done by hand or machine.
