Our tunic is a modern take on a Medieval garment called a Cote, but ours has a knee length hemline, and sides seam pockets. This unisex garment is cut to look great on all body types. Some wear it as an effortless day dress, others use it in costuming to transform themselves into a viking, druid, elf, etc. The sleeves are 3/4 length, and slightly tapered but not cuffed, allowing for easy rolling.
All tunics are made from 100% preshrunk handwoven cotton, and are machine wash and dry-able. We use rolled hems and flat-felled seams to ensure the quality of our clothes. These tunics stand the test of time and wear, lasting our customers ten years or more of hearty wear.
The Barnswallow motif is inspired by the blue and rust color bird that it is named after. The blue section of the cloth is dyed with indigo, a plant based dye that becomes a lighter wash over time (like denim).

We make everything here by hand, and while we have quite a large stock available, sometimes an item you ordered isn't already made, or its still in the process of being completed. Because of the nature of our production line, and the time it takes to make each piece, we ask that you give us at least two months to create your garment. If this is the case we will send you an email letting you know, otherwise you can expect your order in about a week, or however long it takes to ship it.
