The kaftan, or Klappenrock, is a garment that originated with the nomadic steppe people, such as the Magyars, Huns and Avars. Early medieval people in western Europe, who traded with the steppe people, have adopted this garment. The kaftan was especially popular among the Rusvik Vikings, with numerous decorations being added to the garment. The Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in Scandinavia also wore a caftan. There are various visual historical sources for early medieval people wearing kaftans, for example the warriors on the Sutton Hoo helmet. Archaeological remains have been found in Haithabu. This replica of an early medieval caftan is made of sturdy cotton and is best worn with a belt. It reaches to the knees, just like the originals. Please note: depicted accessories like the belt and the fur are not included.
