Medieval robe, also known as rouba, is a loose historical clothing for men. This type of dress was worn in the 14th and 15th century. Our medieval robe is put on through the head and its length reaches the knees. Robe of this type has a stand-up collar and is buttoned up under the neck with molded tin buttons. We make this garment from wool with a linen lining. It is made of four parts in the torso, plus collar and sleeves.

The tin buttons in our medieval robe can be replaced with fabric buttons or other buttons from our assortment. You can also choose the color of wool in this dress and the color of linen for the lining.



What was the role of a medieval robe?

According to fashion, this dress was popular in the 14th and 15th century. Just like houppelande, medieval robe was put on a doublet and worn as an outer historical clothing. However, unlike the houppelande, it wasn't used only as court clothing. Medieval robe was more general-purpose, worn both as an "official" dress and work clothing.

Usually, a robe is a long and spacious dress which is more useful than court fashion. A medieval robe was used in the 14th and 15th century.
