I guess it depends on the material, but it could work.

The material is sintetic, this is the problem... But I'don't know where i can found a tape made with natural material...

Frankly the easiest thing to do is to make solid-color stripes. We know they used them.

I know, but I want to reenact a visigoth, and they were more "romans" than the other germanic people. I want to do something in the middle point of the germanic "pure" tunic (without fornitures, like the Thorsberg moor tunic ) and the coptic tunic. For me, and this is a personal think, the coptic tunic is too much "fashion" for a visigothic warrior. Isn't it?

Hello Sergio,


Quote:I want to do something in the middle point of the germanic "pure" tunic (without fornitures, like the Thorsberg moor tunic ) and the coptic tunic.
Is there any evidence that such "hybrid tunics" existed? If not, I would wear a simple germanic tunic OR a coptic one.

Regarding a "middle point", you should take a look at these two tunics:

The Coptic Tunic evolved from Roman, not Germanic fashion. Your best bet for a middle point would be the Dura-Europos Tunic:

This is mine:

Here's one based off the Isla Rizzola Mosaics in the Late 6th/Early 7th Century:

Exactly, when I told about middle point I mean more simple design like the Dura-Europos Tunic or this

In fact, my idea was to buy a simple red tunic and add the fornitures following this last desing with the two vertical stripes.

Someone knows where I can buy stripes with fornitures for my tunic??? :?

If by Fornitures you mean Clavii, no I don't, but I might be able to find some. I believe La Wren's Nest used to sell Orbiculi.

Do we have evidence germanic people (should narrow this one to a tribe) used these kinds of ornaments in their clothing?

I already mentioned the Isla Rizoli Mosaics from the 6th/7th century.

There was a find dated to the 4th century in Scandanavia (very recent in fact, 2012 at least) of a Tunic with Segmentae (squares) and Clavii (stripes).

There are some Tunics with this kind of ornamentation found in Thorsberg-Mose dating to the 5th/6th century and I think some found in the Netherlands as well.

Hello Sergio,

I am making late roman tunic more or less like yours and I had the same difficulties so I decided to make the stripes and other parts on my own.
The tunic is in red wool, the black pieces (orbiculi, squares, etc...) are in linen and the designs are also made in wool.
All of them areare based in existing Coptic tunics. It isn't finished but it can give you and idea.

Another alternative is the tablet weaving but I find it complicate.

It will be finished in a week.

Regards

Flavius Aetius, when i told fornitures I meant embroided, not only the stripe (clavii). :-)

Atellus (are you spanish?) I like very much your work, congratulations, but I want to do something more simple, without orbiculi or segmentae, but not too much simple (without anything).

More or less this design but with embroided stripes.

You can use tablet-waeve for your clavii. There're several vendors selling tablet weavings per meter.
I've some weaves from Sonja from http://www.die-wollhex.de/index.htm but there're loads of other options.
Armae in france sells loose orbiculi.
