You get a product that is pre-washed, the dress is designed in Norway by Klesarven. Made in Europe.
Klesarven has designed a Viking dress based on archaeological finds in Birka. However, there is considerable uncertainty surrounding the pattern construction of the dresses, but many finds of various fragments indicate that this construction has been widely used. It has been possible to be inspired by the findings as the quest is very popular and reconstructed by Viking enthusiasts around the world.
The term serk is most commonly used for historical everyday wear, primarily underwear and nightwear in the Viking Age, the Middle Ages and on until the early 1900s. A serk could be sewn in the same way as a dress, with sewn wedges at the sides and also under the sleeves for greater width. Serks could also be sleeveless, with skirts and life all in one, and ties or harnesses over the shoulders. Serks were worn against the body under the dress, or with an underserk. Serks have traditionally been made of coarse or finer linen, hemp or wool, but later also of cotton. Serker could be embroidered with embroidery, lace and other details.
