Medieval Hood For Women, Various Colours
This bonnet is made of a light cotton fabric. A concealed elastic band ensures a good fit and creates a beautiful ruffle at the hem. In the Middle Ages and early modern times, the bonnet was the headgear of married women, while unmarried ones were allowed to leave their heads uncovered. The expression "get under the bonnet" is derived from this custom. Even today, bonnets are an integral part of European traditional costumes. In addition, the bonnet also had a practical use - to protect the hair from dirt, e.g. in the household or at work.

As authentic as possible, as modern as necessary!
This medieval bonnet is part of the Battle-Merchant collection of historical garb and medieval clothing for men, women and children. From the first drawing to the last needle stitch, this garment has been planned, designed and crafted with special attention to detail. We base our clothes more or less exactly on their historical models, grave finds or museum pieces, if such exist. We keep alterations, e.g. to adapt to today's sizes and working methods, to a minimum. See for yourself!
