Hood, red/black/gold

Hoods with embellished mantles appear throughout the middle years of the 14th C. in manuscripts such as the Romance of Alexander (MS. Bodl. 264) and the works of Guillaume de Machaut (BnF FR 1584 fol 91v).  Although the manuscripts show a nearly infinite variety of individual interpretations of the style, embellishment above a dagged edge and detailing above a solid contrasting edge appear most frequently. The tails on these fashionable hoods are also extraordinarily thin and long.

Taking inspiration from one of the dancers in the 'Oeuvre poetique' manuscript of Guillaume de Machaut (1355-60), we've added embellishment above the dagged edge of our hood, and made the liripipe tail very narrow and extremely long.  


Red wool hood with black and gold detail as shown. Narrow liripipe is up to 120" long. 


PLEASE NOTE: Limited quantity item- To preserve the uniqueness of these hoods, we'll be doing very short runs in assorted colours, embellishment and dag patterns.  When a style is gone it won't be repeated.
