A type of medieval headwear. Gremlin open medieval hood has a liripipe and it was worn from the beginning of the 15th century, mostly in England and France. This headwear is made of wool with linen lining in the same color.

Just like other medieval open hoods, Gremlin is a typical garment for a lady. It stands out with its form as it uncovers the neck, which makes it a more convenient choice for warm days. This form makes it more airy and ethereal, and thus eye-catching. On windy days, you can pin it to a fillet.

Open hood is a perfect choice with houppelande or cotehardie. We recommend wearing a contrastive set.



On special request, we can make an open hood or its lining from other fabric, like silk or brocade. If you are interested, please contact our Customer Service.
