Our Decorative Fillet in Burgundy worn with a Barbette

About our Decorative Fillet 


Head-coverings were a critical component of dress in the Middle Ages. Hats were common with men and women of all classes, and came in a wide variety of forms, and made of a wide variety of materials. Men wore their hats alone or over a hood or coif, while women seem to have worn theirs either alone, over a simple veil over a full veil and wimple. Our decorative fillet is open topped and best secured to head when worn with a Barbette or Wimple using Veil Pins. Our women's decorative fillet can be dated as early as the mid-13th century Macjieowski Bible and was used throughout the 14th century and are made in 100% linen colors to coordinate with our other medieval styles.
