Description of the Product

The "cappa" or chaperon, is a one-piece hood with a short cape over the shoulders, put on by pulling over the head. Wool ones were used in cold weather, and lighter ones for summer while pieces made of leather offered protection from rain and wind. The hood could be pulled off the head to hang behind, leaving the short cape round the neck and shoulders. The edge of the cape was often trimmed, cut or scalloped for decorative effect. The use of a chaperon began before 1200. In this form it continued to the end of the Middle Ages, worn by the lower classes, often by women as well as men, and especially in Northern Europe. The hood was loose at the back, and sometimes ended in a tail that came to a point.

Slit at the front, this supple, smooth, yet sturdy suede chaperon in warm dark brown is very comfortable to wear. High quality genuine leather makes this a gorgeous accessory to complement your Robin Hood or other archer costume. It goes well with a large variety of other costumes too whether you are a hired sword or a forester.

You can see the chaperon also on the music video KORPIKLAANI -Ämmänhauta
