An all purpose medieval headwear for women fastened with 8 tin buttons. This medieval cowl has a fashionable liripipe. In standard, we sew it from wool with linen lining.

You can modify this women’s cowl to match weather conditions. When you button it up the chin, it perfectly protects the neck and head against wind and rain. You can also unbutton it and wear loosely behind the head. When you button this cowl up, we suggest unrolling the edges to present lining and highlight the face.

Our medieval cowl has a collar covering partially the shoulders and torso. You can decorate it with badges, brooch, or pins. This headwear can be also decorated with contrastive lining.

Medieval women’s cowl is universal. It will match both loose garments (like robe) and fitted dresses (like our outer dress or cottehardie). Worn with a cloak, it’s worth to put the collar of a hood outside.

If you want your order to be realized FASTER, please provide us your head girth (B1) and neck girth (B2) during placing it. This will speed up production, so your hood will come to you sooner!

Where to find a historical example of women’s liripipe cowl?

We found and inspiration for this model of women’s cowl in Très belles Heures de Notre-Dame (1375-1400). Ladies on the pages of this manuscript wear unbuttoned cowls, like the Gremlin model, presenting decorative buttons. Other ladies wear similar hoods buttoned up the chin.

What is the role of liripipe in medieval cowl?

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.

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.
