Where to look for examples of early medieval headwear?

Both linen and woolen headwear, most of all in a form of simple medieval hoods for men, you can find in sources from the 12th and 13th centuries. One of the most important works from that time is the Morgan Bible - a richly illustrated codex created for Louis IX of France between 1240 and 1250.



Hoods in the Middle Ages

Hoods enjoyed popularity practically for the whole medieval period. They were worn both by men and women of all social classes.

Due to its availability and desired properties of the fabric, medieval hoods were sewn usually from wool, often with linen lining. At first, cowls and hoods simply had to provide warmth and convenience as a head and neck cover.

In the 14th century hoods started to evolve - apart from functionality, they were also an important part of former fashion. Cowls and hoods were decorated with cutouts, buttons and liripipes. Wealthier classes often used expensive fabrics (silk, brocade), contrastive combinations of colors and printed textiles. Open medieval cowls appeared (for example Gremlin).



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.
