The Lion Coptic

The Lion Coptic

 

Here is a look at one of our past Coptic Tunics!   

 We have chosen a rare complete linen Coptic tunic, (Egypt, c. 5th - 7th Century AD), with woven decorative 'clavi' over the shoulders, parallel bands around the arms, and two rectangular panels on either side. The back of the neckline is hemmed as is each side, with a thicker linen seam under each armpit. Interestingly,  there is a hidden interior belt loop sewn into the inside of the garment, allowing the tunic to be wrapped around the torso and cinched tight.  The ancient garment was being sold for $5,000 on private auction.  Our version, nicknamed the Lion Tunic for the running lion on the clavi, debuted in 2018.

Jennifer and Darin, otherwise known in the SCA as ("Lady Gwenhwyfar" and "Sir Adric Morwin") co-founded Linengarb years ago because they could not find anyone who made great fighter pants! Today they love to travel to many events, own 2 trailers, 4 cats, 3 washers (dye is very messy!) and claim one son, Lars. Both are pyros, and believe the other one creates more of a mess during projects. Gwen embroiders, and loves the camera. Adric can build anything he imagines, and wins every Trivial Pursuit game he has ever played. Neither one likes cauliflower, or the feeling of squishy mud between their toes.
