Medieval Canvas Coif with Lining, Unisex, various colours

This coif (also: coiffe) is made of sturdy canvas and lined with a light cotton fabric. It has a tight fit, covers the hair and can be secured under the chin with ties.

Throughout the Middle Ages, headdresses were very common for both men and women. Coifs of the type offered here were predominantly worn by men and children, yet also popular with women, whatever the walk of life. While the lower classes usually used them for work to protect themselves against the sun and dirt, the middle classes often wore them under their actual headdresses, knights (in a padded version) under their chainmail coifs and kings under their crowns. They were also used as a protection against parasites such as lice.

The coif was a staple piece of clothing in the Middle Ages, as numerous historical illustrations show - for example the Rutland Psalter, an illuminated manuscript, or the Morgan Bible (also known as the Maciejowski Bible or Crusader Bible), a picture bible from the 13th century.

This nice, simple coif is ideal for medieval markets, LARP, reenactment or living history.

As authentic as possible, as modern as necessary!
This medieval coiffe is part of Battle-Merchant's line of period clothing and medieval garments for men, women and children. From the first sketch to the last stitch, this garment was planned, designed and handcrafted with particular attention to detail. Our clothes are modeled (sometimes accurately, sometimes less so) on historical examples, grave finds and original museum pieces where they exist. We always endeavour to keep the necessary adjustments to today's standards, e.g. in terms of size and manufacturing process, to a minimum. Just see for yourself!
