Viking age clothing - textile finds
General textile finds from Scandinavia during the Viking age.
Viking women: Clothing: The Køstrup find
Køstrup smokkr, details of pleating One end of the smokkr fragment had been pleated with tiny pleats, 2-3 mm deep and 3 mm wide. The pleated part is currently approximately 7.6 cm long. The longest pleat is torn 4.3 cm from the top of the smokkr, so we don't know whether the fabric only was pleated near the chest, or if the pleats ran further down.
