Our Children's Linen Liripipe Hood in Dark Green

About our Children's Hoods 

 

Our children's wear line is based on smaller simplified, versions of our adult clothing, as it was in period. Head-coverings were a critical component of dress in the Middle Ages. Hoods were common with men and women of all classes, and came in a wide variety of forms: long and short tailed, dagged or straight hems, either pull-over or with an open front that was buttoned or pinned closed. Only the sumptuousness of the fabric, elaborateness of the dagging, or extreme length of the tail distinguished the hood of a duke from that of a villein. In general, the most extreme version of this style with the longest tail was typical in the mid to late fourteenth century, while the shorted tail was most common before and after this time. This design has an open front that can be closed with your own pin, or you can add your buttons to customize its look. Any of these hoods can be ordered with short or long tail as solids (as listed) or as particolored (each half in different color) in any of the two colors listed (subject to fabric availability).
