This style of hood is based on/inspired by a find in Skjold Harbor in Norway which dates to the 11th century. A hood is a great cover for the head and the shoulders from exposure to sun, cold temperatures and especially windy weather. In the medieval times a hood was often also combined with some kind of coif, hat, cap or a combination of coif and cap.

I printed this lovely midweight linen fabric by hand using a bee stamp which I carved myself. The 16th century bee stamp is based on and inspired by artwork from the second half of the 16th century.
