Viking tunics are fashioned of a tough material that can survive the elements. This was crucial because it kept people warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The fabric was also breathable, which kept individuals from getting too hot. Tunics were therefore ideal for Vikings who worked outside.
Viking shirts were more than just apparel; they were also symbolic. The color of a Viking's clothing, for example, may reflect their social rank. Shirts composed of richer fabrics, such as silk, were worn by wealthier Vikings, while coarser fabrics, such as wool, were worn by poorer Vikings.
Vikings' clothes reflected not just their individual identities, but also the larger civilization in which they lived. People wore Viking garb to display their commitment to their group, clan, or region.
