Ancient Scottish Arisaidh
This stunning Scottish wool tartan arisaidh revives the spirit of ancient Scotland's Highland women. The arisaidh was the elegant and practical choice for the woman who lived and worked in the beautiful green highlands of Scotland. over a millenia ago. The arisiadh was worn belted around the waist and the extra fabric could be pinned at the breast and worn up as a hood to keep warm in the rain and cold. The excess could also be rolled and tied about the waist or tucked into the belt in warmer weather and to keep it from interfering with chores. It also provided lots of 'pockets' to perhaps stash a spindle and wool or herbs gathered from the fields.
This early period Scottish women's arisaidh includes one 4 yard arisaidh (60 inches wide). Also available is a period accurate embroidered linen Kertch, and leather belt. To purchase the FULL Ancient Scottish Arisaidh Ensemble click here.
