Description

This style of arming cap/coif was worn throughout the medieval times by all ages and classes.

A coif can be worn by itself to cover the head from sun or wind, to keep ones hair in place or as a nightcap at cold inside or outside camping events. Sometimes a coif was also combined with some kind of hat, cap or hood or a combination of cap and hood. Besides as every day garment it can also be used as arming cap for Heavy Fighting or Fencing as extra layer between helmet padding and head. It really helps to keep longer hair in its place and out of the face.

I printed this lovely linen fabric by hand using a griffin stamp which I carved myself. The 13th century griffin was inspired by medieval artwork.
