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.

Head-coverings were a critical component of dress in the Middle Ages. Hats were common with men and women of all classes, and came in a wide variety of forms, and made of a wide variety of materials. Men wore their hats alone or over a hood or coif, while women seem to have worn theirs either alone, over a simple veil, or a full veil and wimple. Our decorative fillet is open topped and best secured to head when worn with a Barbette or Wimple using Veil Pins. Our women’s decorative fillet can be dated as early as the mid-13th century Macjieowski Bible and was used throughout the 14th century and are made in 100% linen colors to coordinate with our other medieval styles.
