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.

Please keep in mind that photos sometimes can’t display the true colors. Every hood & print is slightly different and unique due to the handprinting process.
