Fibulas are used ever since the bronze ages to close clothing on the wearers body often referred to as "the buttons before there were buttons". They were used up to the late medieval period, until the button and buttonhole were introduced. Used as jewlery, they were often decorated rich.
Our "Sylvana" fibula is such a decoration fibula. As with all our steel and iron ware, they are made by hand. The fibula is beatifully decorated with leaves on its end. The ring is completly torqued. It was sanded down only a little to keep the rough, wrought iron, look.
All our cloaks and coats can be worn with a fibula, as long as you remove the buttons and decide to poke through the fabric with the long thorn.
