13th Century Tunic
Photo taken at the Eindhoven Museum, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Brown tweed woollen tunic with white linen undertunic and headdress. The neckline of the tunic closes with a silver replica of a 13th century brooch. The sleeves of the dress are tight at the wrist. Around my waist a leather belt with pewter ornament, orange woollen pouch and dagger with red leather sheath. I am wearing short red woollen hosen (socks) and brown leather turnshoes.
