In antiquity, a tunic was predominantly understood to be an undergarment worn directly on the skin. In the early Middle Ages, the tunic changed and was now worn as an overgarment. There are only a few surviving fragments, but quite a few contemporary illustrations, such as the carpet of Bayeux or miniatures, which show the medieval clothing and its implications.
Our early medieval tunics are largely based on these sources. They are wide cut, a waist was made in the Middle Ages with a belt. The length of the sleeves is about three quarters of the arm. These tunics are very suitable for early medieval representations, such as Vikings, Slavs or Celts.
