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 an octopus stamp which I carved myself. This octopus is a mixture of a late medieval octopus as depicted in a 16th century manuscript as well as a little bit of modern and ancient Minoan inspiration.
