Oseberg Brocade, Red and Beige

Reference : 103-01-0014

Our reproduction in artificial silk of an extant Persian textile from 9th century that was found on a Viking ship Oseberg in Norway.

It was about hundred year ago when more then hundred silk fragments were found on a ship Oseberg on the Norwegen coast. First they were thought to be prey from England and Ireland. But later it was determined that Vikings actually conducted frequent trade with Persia and Byzantine Empire and those silks to be linked to that trade.

There were several smaller rectangular textile fragments found on the boat. Vikings often used these small pieces as decoration for their garments. Our red replica with beige and black pattern shows typical pearled medallions with presumably Persian warier on a horse aiming a bow on a lion. You can read more about the founds from Oseberg ship HERE and HERE.

Nowadays the original textile is part of a private collection in the UK.
