Do you want to look like a viking?
Viking age re-enactment is growing more and more. To be able to contribute to and participate in a world that feels like the Viking age, we need clothes; clothes that make us look and feel like vikings. This is exactly what I want to help you with. The idea behind this site is to provide you with more information and help you with creating a Viking age outfit that is as real as possible, based on your desires and possibilities.
Courses, Workshops and Lectures
Many people prefer personal instructions for learning about Viking age clothing and how to create their own outfits. You are welcome to book me for a workshop, lecture or longer course.
Where did I learn all I know about Viking age clothing and textile handicrafts? Here you find my almost complete list of sources. It is updated regularly, because there is always more to learn.
My name is Susanna Broomé and I am the one who runs Viking Age Clothing. I am a reenactor since many years and I have sold my patterns since 1995. They have evolved a lot since then and there is always more to learn. I love to dig deep into the archaeological literature and to study small fragments to unfold their secrets about how people looked and lived long ago. I also love to share my knowledge, to write and to teach. And I love textile handicrafts, to build beautiful objects from threads and fabrics with my hands.
Welcome to my new website. I hope you will enjoy the information you find here. More will come. Best Regards, Susanna Broomé
