The Roman Senate - An important institution
Our Roman tunics made of organic cotton have a special look thanks to the two sewn-on red stripes, the sign of the Roman senators. The senators of the old Roman era were not only highly respected citizens in the Roman Empire, but they were also very influential and extremely powerful. About 100 citizens belonged at that time to the Roman Senate and directed the destinies of the people and inhabitants of the great Roman Empire. They adopted laws and thus defined substantially the lives of the people of Rome.

The Romans used cotton?
Yes, indeed! Traditional tales demonstrate that clothes made of cotton were worn in the imperial age alongside wool, linen and silk (see publications from Augusta raurica, Switzerland) and came via trade routes and import goods into the Roman empire.
Even Plinius Secundus reported about them: Antique cotton
Tip for Reeanactors: Simply sew the sleeves and the seams on the neck by hand over and the tunic will look like homemade!
