More Hoods

This nice hood will form the basis of a reconstruction of a French knight from the end of the XIV-th century and the beginning of the XVth.  It is made from thin wool, and is machine stitched.

As the work progresses on the reconstruction we’ll keep you updated on the other elements that we’re involved with.

When it comes to textiles it will include a doublet, a pair of hosen, underwear and eventually a gambeson that will go over the armor. The happy owner(the guy on the photo above) is Tsvetin Apostolov, probably the best armorer in Bulgaria.  We work closely with him on almost everything medieval we do. And drink beer regularly together. Don’t forget to check out his work!
