Red and Black Dagged Hood with our Blue Linen Cotte

About our Hoods 

 

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. Men wore their hoods alone or with a plain linen coif beneath or a hat over, while women seem to have worn the hoods alone or with a wimple. Our dagged, short-tailed, reversible silk hood, offered in a palette of medieval jewel tones that matches our silk cottes and gowns. Generally speaking, hoods with shorter tails were most common in earlier medieval periods and amongst lower and middle classes through the fifteeenth century. Since it is fully reversible it is like having two hoods in one! The open front can be fastened with a badge so that you can accessorize to match your outfit. You also can leave it open and turn back the front, revealing the contrast lining, as women often did later in the fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries.

Also, despite how the colors may appear on your monitor the same color names in Wool, Silk and Linen are different and do not exactly coordinate.
