Early Medieval Tunic Vallentin, red/blue
This straight cut tunic is made from cotton fabric. Slits on the side seams allow for adequate freedom of movement, and the neckline, cuffs and bottom hem are offset in a different colour. 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.
This tunic is ideal for the portrayal of many North and Central European peoples during the Migration Period (Völkerwanderung) and the early Middle Ages. The garb of the time was characterized by knee-length outerwear, colour contrasting details and simple patterns mainly consisting of rectangles sewn together.
The look and cut of this tunic are based on historical illustrations, amongst others the Stuttgart Psalter and the Bayeux Tapestry.

As authentic as possible, as modern as necessary!
This medieval 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!
