About Simple Fillet

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 over a full veil and wimple. Our plain fillet is one size, meant to be closed by pinning and is best secured to head when worn horizontally with a Barbette using Veil Pins. The Plain Fillet is a great foundation for securing a variety of headwear such as Veils, Flemish Hoods, Henins and more.
