Tunics

Viking & Medieval Clothing

The owner of Tunics is on vacation.

Greetings!
2013 and the first months of 2014 have been fantastic! Because of the ever increasing demand for my hand-crafted tunics, pants and hoods, I've decided to take the plunge and expand my physical shop space as well as my Etsy shop. Along with this, I'll be doing some traveling in Europe to visit some of the great Viking exhibits and do some much needed research. I also hope to see first hand some of the fantastic Viking crafts created by my fellow artisans.

The goal is to be back on-line with a fresh selection of Viking clothing by May 1st. Feel free to email me with any questions you may have, keeping in mind I may only be on-line about one or two times per day. I look forward to providing you with even better hand-crafted tunics and the best in customer service.
Cheers!
Jerry

Tunics' Shop Announcement

Viking, Medieval or Fantasy; SCA, Re-enactor, Ren Faire player, Cosplay or LARP - Welcome to TUNICS, a shop with a wide selection of handcrafted tunics in a variety of fabrics, colours and trims. The shop listings only show some of the possibilities. Since everything is handmade by me, making changes is easy! My favorite work is making a customer’s vision come to life. And you’ll also be getting a comfortable and durable garment that you’ll enjoy wearing. Convo me and let’s start working on a custom tunic just for you!

My tunic pattern is based on the Birka (Sweden) find, dated to the 9th -10th century. Key features are under-arm gussets and triangular gores sewn into the sides. Both features add room for movement and make for a more comfortable garment. I’ve eliminated the gussets and use a wider, curved shoulder. I still use the gores on the sides. It not only makes it easier to move around, but adds a slight flare at the bottom hem that gives it a better look.

I’m in the process of dividing the shop into Sections so you can quickly find particular styles or fabrics based on your needs. I make most of my tunics in linen or wool, natural fabrics in wide-spread use throughout history. I also use cotton and cotton blends when needed. Whatever the fabric though, I make sure that it’s good quality and feels right. Yep, I field-test everything! I finish by serging all seams with colour-matched (with rare exceptions) thread.

Browse my listings and add something nice for yourself to your shopping cart. I ship USPS Priority Mail on most items (2-3 business days). Need it fast? Go to the “Ready to Ship” section, it’ll go out as soon as the Post Office opens.

Email me with any questions, I’m always happy to help.
Cheers!
Jerry
