Late-medieval pourpoint based on French iconography from 14th and 15th century. Our gambeson is characterized by low weight, hight mobility, and historical look.
Woolen pourpoint Notre-Dame is a civil version of a linen pourpoint from our shop.
Medieval arming garments in their time were very popular in civil fashion. Felted jacks, like our pourpoint, eventually were used in everyday routine. Thanks to solutions from arming gambesons, our woolen aketons give their owners more attractive body shape, bringing out a chest of a wearer.
This woolen gambeson is inspired by model from Très Belles Heures de Notre-Dame and it was designed by us for the most demanding cutomers. Upper part has vertical stitchings (chest, back, shoulders). From the waist down and on the forearms, it has horizontal stitchings.
This quilted doublet in standard version is buttoned up with tin buttons on torso and forearms. It also has a low stand-up collar.
Outer layer and lining of this medieval clothing are made of linen. Filling is made of woolen felt of 2 levels of thickness:
- thicker on chest (Y7b),
- thinner on rest of the gambeson (Y7a).
More information about thickness you can find here.
Such pourpoint, together with proper armor, gives a good level of amortization. It will work both as civil and arming quilted clothing.
Tin buttons in this arming aketon can be changed to overcast stitchings or point bindings.
