The outfits below are the reconstructions of those used in Kievan Rus’, about the 13th century.
The territory of modern Ukraine was the main part of Kievan Rus' in the 9th-early 13th centuries. In those ancient times, people made clothing of homespun cloth, linen or hemp canvas. The clothes were simple and comfy. But the costumes of warriors are quite another matter. Knights used metal armor, leather pieces of clothing and, of course, linen or hempen garments. The main purpose of their costumes was to protect the body in battle. Here you are several examples of warrior clothes used in the Middle Ages.
