Something important written here. And may be something more.
“From the fury of the Northmen deliver us, O Lord.”
This is an exclusive version of our Viking Tunic. It is made of natural flax linen with two types of trim (both trim patterns have been designed for this costume by ArmStreet). Cuffs and hem of the tunic are decorated with second layer of linen. This way these parts of the tunic are less unstainable. If you are choosing green or blue linen as second color trim will be replaced by one with matching color pattern.
Tunic's design is completely historically accurate and based on excavations at Birka, Sweden.
Important note about linen accents: if blue or green color choosen as secondary one, trim will be replaced with similar trim with matching color scheme:
Original trim will be used for red, black and brown secondary color, and green-blue one with green and blue decorations

hello, Team!! Our package arrived today, and it was so exciting to open it! I'd ordered my husband the natural flax with blue trim, and it is beyond wonderful! As usual, your attention to detail is amazing, it fits beautifully, and he can't wait to go eventing!
Wow! Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! We`re happy the tunic fits and we`re sure your husband will have an amazing look during many events. :)Always welcome to ArmStreet!
Hello Armstreet! You claim that "Tunic's design is completely historically accurate and based on excavations at Birka, Sweden". Can I ask you for some references? As far as I know, there is no Viking Age tunic in Sweden, and the embroidery is based on no evidence. Thank you in advance. Thomas
The tunic`s cut is historically accurate, it is indeed based on excavations at Birka - big trading center of the Viking's epoch, which is placed on the territory of present-day Sweden. You can find more detail info about this topic here - bibliography, full of reliable sources can be found on the bottom of the page.As for the trim and embroidery decorations, they are based on Viking's patterns of different styles, there is a detailed article on this topic on our website, but of course we never pretend that they are authentic replicas as well as all of our items.
I see there is a linen accents blue but i dont see the buying option.
The tunic is available in stock in two colour combinations: Natural tunic - Red accents and Black tunic - Red accents.You can order a custom-made tunic with blue accents, just switch to a "Custom size" tab and choose the desired colours.
Is it hand stitched? It appears to me that is machine stitched. Is it visible anywhere on the outside of the tunic and trim? Thank you.
This tunic has machine-made visible stitches, our costumes are made not in accordance to the strict reenactment techniques. We're quite far from historical reconstruction :)
Great looks, can you make this with midnight blue (as seen in "Viking linen pants") trims ?
Can be made with midnight blue accents upon request, please add a comment to your order.
Can you cut side or front & back slits in this? Thank you. Rowena
Yes, such modification costs $15 extra. Please add a comment about placing and length of the slits to your order.
Beautiful tunic! Great communication! I'll definitely be back for more!
Thanks for the review! You're always welcome!
