In the late 8th century Scandinavia, rather than wearing long tunics or robes, men and women began to don a new type of garment that covered only the lower half of the body. These garments were Viking trousers and were tight-fitting and often made of wool or animal skin.
Viking trousers soon became popular among the Norse people, spreading throughout Scandinavia and eventually becoming the prominent form of lower bodywear throughout Northern Europe.
Thanks to their durability and comfort, Viking trousers rapidly became one of the most popular articles of clothing in the Scandinavian world. Today, they remain a symbolic part of Scandinavian and Viking culture.
