About Turret Hat

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 veil and wimple. Our Turret Hat can be dated as early as the mid-13th century Macjieowski Bible and was used throughout the 14th century, worn by men and women and are made in 100% linen colors to coordinate with our other medieval styles.

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.

A Lady shows off her elegant fashion sense with her purple and white linen houppelande, with a subtle black linen kirtle underneath. She modestly covers her head with a rectangular linen veil and a black turret hat.

A lord feigns disinterest as he casually displays his wealth with a burgundy and cream velvet brocade houppelande, contrasted with gold simple hose and and a gold turret hat. He finishes the look with some black leather accents: a Simple belt, Ankle boots, and a pair of swordsman’s gloves.
