A Simple Bulgarian Tunic

This is a simple medieval tunic based on a couple of burial site garments. It is a part of a soldier’s outfit from the time of the Second Bulgarian Tsardom ( XII-th – XIV-th centuries ). There is barely anything unusual to it except he buttons and the neck slit. It’s made of┬álinen, and it’s mostly machine made. It’s a great thing to wear during the summer heatwave on the Balkans. We’ve tested our summer garments plenty of times and have come up with the conclusion that linen is the most suitable material for this type of clothes.

Here are some photos of the tunic, taken during our recent visit to Sigishoara, Romania.

Two Pairs of Medieval Turnshoes

It seems like this particular model of turnshoes was pretty popular in medieval Europe. This type of turnshoes are typical for western Europe, but are not uncommon to the kingdoms on the Balkans as well. We have a couple of frescoes and murals depicting this exact type of shoes. Here you can see two pairs of the same model. The female model has only one leather sole, while the male version has 2 layers of leather soles. Both pairs are made of a sole(5mm thick ) and upper part(2mm). They are hand-sewn with waxed thread.

And here is the male pair:
