Viking Tunics were an essential part of daily life since it had to make the chilly environment of Scandinavia more comfortable. As a result, wool, which was inexpensive and offered protection from the wind, rain, and cold, was typically used to make Viking tunics. In addition, a linen version that provided the same function and allowed for ventilation when worn under multiple additional layers of clothing was highly popular. The top tunic, on the other hand, was mostly composed of wool and occasionally had colorful materials affixed to the neck.

For more important members, some of the tunics may have also been decorated with patterns or had symbolic designs woven into them.

Typically Viking men wore tunics over shirts, since tunics were thick clothing items men also used to wear them in battle. The male Viking often wore a shirt, pants, and cloak. The tunic may have reached the knees and resembled a long-sleeved shirt without buttons.

Grave excavations and sacrifices provide the majority of the information we have regarding the characteristics of Viking tunics. Unfortunately, natural textiles are not well conserved since they are prone to degradation. However, important excavation sites like Haithabu have made significant contributions to our understanding of Viking tunics. For example, we do know that the Vikings used their worn-out clothing as tar plugs for leaks in their ships. The fact that those specific parts have been preserved by the tar allows us to rebuild the discoveries and get a basic idea of what those tunics would have looked like in the past.

Yellow, red, purple, and blue are the colors that archaeologists are aware were utilized in Viking Age clothing. Being a costly color, blue has only been discovered in the graves of the affluent. Either the indigenous plant woad or the imported dye indigo provided the color blue.

Wool and flax were the two main materials used to make clothes, with other plant and animal fibers like hemp playing a smaller part. Wool's resilience and warmth even when wet made it the perfect cloth for the climate in Scandinavia. By the Viking Age, the majority of sheep were white, making white the color of most wool.

Another appropriate response to their environment was the layering of garments that the Norse frequently wore. Given how much more pleasant linen is on the skin than wool, it was undoubtedly the favored fabric for underwear. Linen is made from flax. Only the rich could buy silk, a costly imported luxury. Cloaks and trimmings frequently featured fur.

Flax has been recognized as the primary fiber in about 40% of Viking Age textile findings. Therefore, flax must have been a crucial plant for the creation of Viking clothing. According to research, more than 20 kg of flax plants were required to yield enough fabric to sew a tunic. Additionally, the process probably took close to 400 hours to complete from the time the flax was sowed until the tunic was sewn. Numerous websites have
