If “the clothes make the man” (or woman!), then the accessories make the clothes. Or at least, they help turn them into a proper medieval outfit. Garters were used to secure men’s and women’s chauses, stockings or hosen below the knee. These feature a brass lobed buckle and would be appropriate for the period of 1300-1500. The buckle was cast from an original from a private collection. The Garters are made of 100% felted wool. They can be secured by working the tongue of the buckle through the fibers or using an awl to create a small hole. The Wool Garters work perfectly with our Linen Medieval Chauses, Joined Hose or Ladies Medieval Stockings.
