Úlfhédinn | Organic Tank Top
In sagas from the Viking age (including the Völsunga) Úlfhéðnar are said to have performed remarkable feats that would be beyond the abilities of any normal warrior.
We have all heard tales in popular culture of berserkers who in the heat of battle would enter a trance like state when fighting. Similarly, it is said that an Úlfhéðinn would enter battle wearing the skin of a wolf rather than any form of armour.
In the archaeological record, an Úlfhéðinn is depicted in the Vendel period on a helmet place found on Öland in Sweden.This design from Dyrs Hjarta Art is hand printed in the Northern Fire studio.
Material & Make
Our Tank Top's are made with ethically sourced 100% organic cotton and are hand printed in house by Northern Fire artists at our workshop in Wales. Our inks are water based and locally sourced and to minimise the negative impact of the textile industry on the environment.

About The Artist
Gloria Notarangelo, known in her work as Dyrs Hjarta Art, commands attention with her bold linework and traditional methods of dotwork. Her knowledge of Nordic artistry allows her to create imagery based on the historical artifacts she has admired over the years, bringing to life traditional styles and symbolism in order to tell stories through her work. To friends and family she is known as a nurturing plant-lover, though she is most often wielding a tattoo gun as a full-time professional artist with Sacred Knot Tattoo in North Wales. You’ll find handcrafted goods, original paintings, prints, pins, and jewellery by Gloria on Northern Fire.
