Brightly colored red and blue garments were a sign of wealth and power during the Viking Age, since the process of dyeing the fabric was more expensive. Successfull raiders and traders would have been able to display bright reds and blues to show off their wealth. Natural colored clothes were usually by those not able to afford brightly dyed garments, or during work or as under garments. The color black (Old Norse: Blár = dark blueish black) is frequently mentioned in the sagas as a color worn by a person about to kill someone. It could thus be a color worn to battle.
