Popular 14-15 century cap with flaps that fold down over the ears but are usually worn up.
Just as a ball cap is popular now, this style of cap was the most popular headwear for men during the height of Venetian power in the Middle Ages.
We found examples of this cap on middle class men and upper class youths in 15th century manuscripts, paintings and tapestries. Made of 100% cotton corduroy in burgundy or forest green. One size fits most.
I'm always apprehensive with "one size" hats because my head is on the large size. Very good to know that the corduroy one fit nicely, even over the curly hair. Quite pleased, and am interested in the brocades. I wanted this for an artistic Venetian picture for my art related site, and this paired with your much older artist's top will look great. Thanks!
What you see is what you get. Fits well and looks just like the photos.
