A type of medieval headwear made of wool with linen lining. This model of a medieval hood is laced-up under armpits. Thanks to this solution our hood is better fitted to the costume. The laces prevent the headwear from moving. We recommend wearing it with garments fitted to the body (cotehardie, jopula).

Laces in this hood are finished with elegant aiglets which also work as a sort of decoration in this garment. A fashionable liripipe has a similar role.

REMEMBER! to provide us your head (B1) and neck (B2) girth. We will make your headwear the FASTEST!

Laced-up hood in medieval sources

You can search for examples of hoods with laces in the late-medieval manuscripts and paintings. For example an illuminated novel about Guiron le Courtois, one of the knights of King Arthur. The work came to existence between 1370-1380 for Bernabò Visconti.

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.
