Green-White Coif


6 in stock

Description of the Product

In medieval times only young girls and unmarried women were allowed to show themselves without any headdress; older and married women wore coifs, not only outside but indoors as well. Headdress was regarded as a social symbol but it had some practical benefits as well as, for instance protecting the wearer´s hair against dirt. The coifs like these were very common in the Middle Ages and they were used on their own or as a kind of underwear under the more formal and expensive headdresses. Even nowadays coifs are an inherent part of many traditional costumes.
Material: upper 100 % cotton, lining 87 % cotton and 13 % linen.
