Hood, Buttoned 'London' Style, 14th-15th Century, Wool

Hood design based on London find no. 246, as presented in the Museum of London "Textiles and Clothing" book. Triangular pieces are inserted as gussets in the sides of the hood. The button holes in the original were initially supported by an inner facing, or perhaps a lining, and we have chosen to completely line the hood in complimentary colored linen.

This sort of close fitting buttoned hood is seen in manuscripts, and was generally worn by women, although they are seen on men in some manuscripts. They were often worn open atop other clothing in a variety of ways to suit the weather.

Round wood buttons, Machine buttonholes, no other visible exterior machine stitching.

Wool exterior lined in linen. Also available with linen exterior lined in linen. Colours are listed outside colour/lining colour.

Model is wearing burgundy wool lined in purple linen. Regarding colours- The hoods are made of what we have in the shop.  Since I intentionally try not to have the same fabrics more than once, the hoods are pretty much unique one-offs. What we have currently available is listed in the drop down menu. If you choose a custom colour, please specify the colours desired in the comments section of the order form. We will do our best to accomodate your request and will contact you if the colours are unavailable. Please allow 6-8 weeks for custom coloured hoods.
