Viking Winningas / Leg Wraps for Children, Herringbone Pattern, var. colours

Leg wraps, also known as winningas or puttees, were a staple of the Germanic attire. They were wound round the leg over the trousers, from the ankle to under the knee, and were a substitute for socks. However, they were much more than a means to keep warm and were also worn to protect the legs from injury. They were used both by men and women.

As authentic as possible, as modern as necessary!

These winningas are part of our line of period clothing and medieval garments for men, women and children. From the first sketch to the last stitch, this garment was planned, designed and handcrafted with particular attention to detail. Our clothes are modeled (sometimes accurately, sometimes less so) on historical examples, grave finds and original museum pieces where they exist. We always endeavour to keep the necessary adjustments to today's standards, e.g. in terms of size and manufacturing process, to a minimum. Just see for yourself!
