Medieval Ladies' Coif with Pleats and Ties, various colours

This historically accurate coif is made of plain cotton fabric. It features a generously sized brim and can be knotted on the back with ties. The decorative pleats starting at the inner edge of the brim do not only make for an attractive look, but also give the bonnet structure.

In the Middle Ages and early modern period, the coif or bonnet was a staple headdress for married women, whereas young girls and unmarried women were allowed to keep their hair uncovered (hence the German expression unter die Haube kommen, which literally translates to "coming under the bonnet" and is still a common idiom today for "getting married"). Furthermore, coifs had the practical advantage of protecting the hair against dirt when performing household chores or other works. Alternative ways for women to cover their heads were for example a plain or frilled/goffered veil (with or without gorget around the neck), a barbette and fillet, a schapel (a decorated, crown-like hoop/wreath often worn in combination with a veil), or a wimple. Even nowadays, coifs and bonnets are still an inherent part of many traditional folk costumes throughout Europe.

This beautiful pleated coif for women is ideal for medieval markets, LARP, reenactment or living history.
