Note: Please note, with the difficulty of accurately representing colors on a variety of monitors, the color names are meant as descriptions along with the swatches. Please use both when deciding on what color to order. Also, despite how the colors may appear on your monitor the same color names in Wool, Silk and Linen are different and do not exactly coordinate.

Our children’s wear line is based on smaller simplified, versions of our adult clothing, as it was in period. Most clothing for younger children was relatively simple in form and therefor had a very unisex look. The simple kirtle shown here could function as outer layer for any child and could be worn belted or not as was often accessorized with a hood. Throughout the Middle Ages clothes were worn in layers, with a light linen tunic or kirtle forming the foundation over which additional linen or wool garments were worn. The exact nature of these earliest garments is unknown, but by the 13th century, they had evolved into a simple, style we commonly call the kirtle. Worn with a shirt underneath and hood this ubiquitous silhouette was a common style of outwear for medieval children, be they child of duke or cotter. Our stock in these style varies so please contact Customer Service to find out what current availability is in the style you are interested in.
