Description of the Product

Coifs or biggins, close fitting caps, were worn throughout the medieval period. As other more fashionable hats became popular, the coif was retained as a way of protecting the fancier hat from hair oils. The coif was also worn on its own in all manner of possible situations, be it working on the fields or sleeping, to keep the hair neat and clean. These two-piece coifs were used by everyone from the 1100s onward: the clergy, the nobility, knights, pesants, men, women, and children. Three piece coifs started to appear the 1600s. This coif is a perfect addition to any European period outfit.
