Pair Of Viking Age Winningas in a variety of colors in a beautiful herring bone pattern.
We are proud to present this great addition to the shop,
we've searched long and far to find the perfect woven leg wraps.
The woven band gives a more durable legwrap that is also more forgiving when wrapping around you leg as it can handle the size differences with ease and therefor fit snugly and comfortably.
Another great feature of the woven bands is that there are no visible machine stitching. The reason for this is that after we carefully cut each band to the perfect length serge the raw edges to ensure they stay in-place, we then fold it over twice to hide the only machine stitch on these before hemming them by hand.
These pairs consist two lengths each measure 3,5 meters // 11.5 feet long and 9 centimeters // 3.5 inches wide to ensure you have enough to keep it securely in-place. No clips or fasteners are needed. The wraps stay firmly in place, even during vigorous activity.
In The Sagas -
An episode in the sagas suggests that leg wrappings were uncommon enough in Iceland to be worthy of note. Chapter 9 of Gull-Þoris saga describes Grímr, who wore a white cloak, white trousers, and swathing bands , spjarrar , wrapped around his legs. And so, he was called Vafspjarra-Grímr - swathing band Grím.
All of the garb offered here is the result of a Collaboration with Nornewoven, that we have worked toward for years. We've searched long and hard to find beautiful fabric that we ended up importing form Sweden. We've tirelessly studied historical finds as well as embroideries, jewelry pieces, stone carvings , sagas and more to ensure we offer garb that is as close to what the people of the viking age wore as we possibly can.
After carefully cutting them to size we professionally serge all raw edge to insure they will never come apart before hemming by hand with a color coordinated and discreet high quality wool sewing thread.
Every aspect of these pieces are a result of deep respect of the old ways, passion for crafting and history and our desire to live lives in balance with all the teachings the norse paganism offer.
Beyond that we wish to share all of knowledge that we gather with others, to strengthen our community, honoring the gods and insuring that these teaching will continue dig their roots deeper into the ground and for the branches to grow and stretch until we are all as solid as the mighty Yggdrasil.
