Late-medieval woolen pourpoint from 14th and 15th century. Our gambeson is characterized by low weight, high mobility, and historical look. It’s proper for both fighters and civilians, as an under garment.
„Hannover” woolen pourpoint is a civil version of our linen gambeson. In the past, arming garments often worked as civil medieval clothing. Woolen pourpoint is one of examples – it is based on garments worn by soldiers. Just like linen version, this quilted doublet shapes a body and brings out a chest.
"Hannover" woolen pourpoint has two types of quilting. Upper part (chest, back, shoulder) has quilting in rhomb shape. Lower part and forearms of this arming doublet has horizontal quilting.
Tin buttons in this medieval aketon can be changed on overcast stitchings or point bindings. It has a low stand-up collar around neck.
Unlike most of our gambesons, wool is the outer layer, while linen inner layer. What also makes it special, is the filling.
To make this arming aketon lighter and more mobile, we used a woolen felt as filling. There are two levels of thickness:
- thicker on chest (Y7b),
- thinner on the rest of pourpoint (Y7a).
