A late-medieval headwear used by women. It consists of two parts: a bonnet and a roll in contrastive color.
Two variants to choose from:
- GKoS1510 - basic version
- GKWS1529 - with silk veil
An escoffion of this type is an effect of women’s hairstyles and and braids on the sides of the head.
This type of a headdress looks the best in contrastive color combinations. What is more, the roll is also wrapped in a string in the color of a bonnet.
To choose the color of your escoffion, please follow our color chart available here.
Please write down the chosen two colors in the commentary section during the process of placing an order.
There is an option of making this product from a different fabric or patterned wool. Please contact our Sales Department before you place an order and we will prepare an individual pricing.
The pictures present our product in three versions: basic, made of the patterned wool, and made of silk from the special order.
Originally the shape of this hat was more sprawling, matching the popular court clothing, like houppelande or Burgundian dress. In the course of time (2nd half of the 15th century) it became more towering, and it’s “horns” almost joined. Later it evolved into the so-called hennin.
Escoffion on historical sources
An example of this headwear can be found in the Chronicles of Jean Froissart (1401-1500) in the form of richly decorated escoffions.
Simpler models are presented on the works of the anonymous Spanish painter from the half of the 15th century, currently stored in The Matropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
