This medieval hood has a characteristic long tail - so-called liripipe - and an extended collar reaching over the shoulders. It’s an all purpose model, perfect with loose outer garments (robe), as well as garments fitted to body shape (cotehardie, jopula). On special request we can decorate this model with a cutout.

The history of hood with extended collar

You can easily find similar examples in sources from the 14th and 15th centuries. The popular source with many medieval hoods of this type, often decorated with a cutout, is Romansie Alexandra illuminated by Jehan de Grise, dated back to 1338-1344.

What is the role of liripipe in hood?

A liripipe is a characteristic element of a few medieval hoods from our assortment. The reasons for introducing this long tail are not entirely clear and we can assume that it’s a simple, yet effective, item of the former fashion. A liripipe could be worn loosely on the back, wrapped around the head, or on the shoulder.

Still, a tail has some practical features. Wrapped around the head, it prevents the hood from slipping off, which is important for a knight or fighter. You can also easily transform a medieval hood into a fabulous chaperon.

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.
