Ketill pants - canvas
Attention: The upper seam on the hip is really wide. Do not wonder, but see the Rus pants cut as an authentic (and surprisingly: very comfortable) way of wearing them.
These pants were made following the example set by the Rus-pants. A early viking pattern, that allows enomous movement. The pants are being tied on the waistband and just below the knee. The calf is fitted tight, so you can also use northmans' style ties for the calfs.
The folds on the hip are moved around the waistline and the pants tied even closer.
The measurements are made along the calf parts, depending on the circumfence of your calfs to fit through.
The steel coloured pants have herringbone stitchit and suit more noble characters as well.
Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase
It is best to start cleaning leather from the most delicate measures possible. Therefore, use a damp cloth with a little soap. If this is not enough - use a hard brush to remove dirt. Remove the soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue, and then use a dry cloth to wipe away the remaining water from the leather. Let it dry completely before the next maintenance step.
Always keep the leather maintenance after cleaning, because the soap will remove some of its natural oils. Apply mink oil, olive oil or professional lanolin-based fats to clean leather using a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of fat with circular movements. Wait for the fat to soak in the leather, then use a clean cloth to clog the residue. For maintenance, you can also use beeswax by heating it to a liquid state and applying it to the leather. Remember that the leather so preserved will be harder and significantly darken what sometimes is the desired effect.
