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