This festive viking kaftan is the perfect piece for anyone looking to suit a viking aesthetic with a bit of fantastical flair.
This striking kaftan is made from pure white wool, which has a great texture and is soft to touch. We have lined it with flax linen, which will increase the longevity of the garment by absorbing sweat and protecting the wool as well as feel lovely and comfortable against your skin. The two natural fibres look amazing next to each other and make this coat both warm and breathable at the same time.
The whole coat is trimmed in our signature Viking knot-work trim and finished with magnificent faux fur around all of the edges, including the neckline and cuffs. This isn’t your average fake fur - it is so convincing that it looks real. The kaftan closes at the front with a series of leather straps, each embossed with knot-work and quality hand cast buckles with a matching Viking motif. Like all of our other best-selling kaftans, we have used a hand-sewn herringbone stitch is used around the shoulder seams as well as down the middle of the back of the coat, giving it a beautiful hand finished look.
Kaftans were a popular item in dark ages clothing, usually used in combination with or in place of a cloak to keep the wearer warm. We have taken slight creative liberty with this piece, intending to create something that may not have existed, but COULD have existed in some stretch of the imagination. Our kaftan has a flattering cut and flows excellently when you walk, creating a handsome silhouette. To make this a truly luxurious kaftan, we’ve included some knot-work embroidery from the centre of the coat up to the buckles. The embroidery is quite neutral and is not meant to resemble any particular animal or pattern, and would go well with any of our other viking items.

Is it now possible to craft the kaftan with the real fur you use on the winter's hat or on the viking boots ? I have both and would love to have a matching kaftan.
Hi Sigismer, unfortunately, it is not possible to make this kaftan with real fur, sorry.
How do you order the Viking Kaftan | Yule edition In red ? The site does not allow me to select a different color. As well as get the current online discount. By the way go the matching hat and gloves in red last year . Love them. Thank you.
Hi Joseph, yes we can make it in red wool upon request. Please simply leave this comment to your order. Please note that 22% discount is already applied to the price.
Would it be possible to do this with real fur ? The color does not match the fur boots/fur hat i have from the viking set. Would love this coat...
Dear Sigismer, unfortunately, it is not possible to make it with real fur for now, sorry.
Could this be made in red wool with a lighter color fur for a Viking Santa-look?
Dear Christian, this is the only faux fur color that we have, unfortunately.
I have some question : is the belt included, or is it only the suit? Also, it is only in white or you will make more color? Because it is a really beautiful kafkan, and maybe i'll buy it sooner or later.
Hi Derek! The coat can be made in different wool colors upon request (green, grey, black, red, wine red) and the belt can be purchased separately here.
I must have this.
We are happy to make it for you, Joel :)

The Vikings Winter hat w/ embroidery and glove were a big hit this last winter and Christmas season. All the younger children loved them. As did the adults.
