A clothing made from 350N puncture resistance fabric, stylized on the 8th-10th century kaftan reaching the knees.

Our HEMA kaftan is dedicated for both light and intensive training or tournaments. It can be a perfect choice for users recreating fighting techniques of the vikings or the history of Eastern Europe.

This HEMA kaftan has a bladecatcher and asymmetrical tuck on the front, covering the double closure: a zipper and velcros. This solution increases the level of protection during a fight, as one of the closures breaks, the other keeps the kaftan together, covering the front of the body.

Inside, on the torso and shoulders, there are pockets with additional cushioning foams. What’s unusual is that the kaftan does not have an adjustable strap on the back. It increases the freedom of movement during fight, the level of protection, and it gives an interesting look. NOTE - the kaftan has an additional amortization from the waist down!

This HEMA gear has a specific design - on the tuck, lower edge and sleeve edges you can notice a blue trim. What is more, this clothing does not have stitches on the outside.

In comparison to most HEMA jackets, this gear is significantly longer. The use of side gussets makes it similar to historical kaftans from the East.


Sources of our HEMA kaftan
Our HEMA kaftan was inspired by the former Rus kaftans from the 8th-10th century, coming from the area of North and Eastern Europe. The popularity of this clothing is proved by iconography and archeological findings. Similar clothing occurred also in Asia.

Similar protection was worn up to the 15th century, especially in the Eastern Europe. It was worn regardless of social class. The status and wealthiness of a wearer were underlined by the rich decorations and fabrics used in the garment.
