Anglo-Saxons made their own clothes out of natural materials. The men wore long-sleeved tunics made of wool or linen. Their trousers were woollen and held up by a leather belt from which they could also hang tools such as knives and pouches.
The women would wear an under-dress of linen or wool and an outer-dress like a pinafore called a peplos which was held onto the underlayer by two brooches on the shoulders.
My dresses and peplos are made from polycotton for easy care. The peplos is pinned with 2 antique bronze, decorated pins and joined across the chest with amber style beads.
