This style of cloak is named after the one found on a mummy in Bocksten Bog in Sweden. It was shaped roughly like an oval with one side cut away and closed with half a dozen buttons on the right shoulder. The hem is usually somewhere between crotch level and almost touching the ground. Art shows that some of these cloaks were single and others double.
A closely related form was probably cut as a full oval or full circle but still buttoned at the shoulder. These can be spotted by the way they wrap around the back of the right arm and start pleating immediately at the front opening, and full-circle cloaks appear in tailors’ manuals from the 16th century.
The original publications are difficult and expensive to obtain and written in Swedish, but Marc Carlsen has an English-language summary.
