A linen medieval fillet used to attach headkerchief or other headwear.

At the times of antiquity, a fillet had a form of a narrow band of cloth, leather or some form of garland, usually worn by athletes. It was often worn as a sign of royalty and became symbolized in later ages as a metallic ring which was a stylized band of cloth.

In medieval times, a fillet was a type of headband worn by unmarried women, usually with a veil or barbette. Kerchiefs of this type were attached to the fillet with pins.

What are the types of medieval headwear?

Similarly to the outer garment, headwears speaks of the social status and in case of women of their marital status. In medieval iconography hardly ever can we find figures without any head wear. During all the period of the Middle Ages a hood was the most widespread head wear. Its functions were protective and sometimes symbolic, ritual or representative. Medieval headwear includes: caps, hats, coifs, hoods, kerchiefs and others. Hoods were often made of cloth, however caps and hats were made of felt.
