Tabard for Children/Youth, Red/Black
Description of the Product
This calf-length sleeveless child's tabard is made from sturdy cotton fabric. It is straight cut and has side slits from the waist down. It also features a somewhat shorter slit on the centre front and back.
The surcoat or tabard was worn by knights over their plate or chain mail armour. It was primarily designed to protect its wearer from direct sunlight on the battlefield, and the various colour combinations were a decisive means of distinguishing brothers-in-arms from enemies in the fray.
Parti-coloured clothing was quite popular in the Middle Ages. Mi-Parti refers to the division of a garment in different colours. A garment could be divided vertically or with a checked pattern of four squares.
