Popular in Tudor and Elizabethan England, as well as Renaissance Italy, this style of coil was worn by women and children. Many paintings show it either worn alone or under a cap.
I suspect it was worn for sanitary reasons to keep the unwashed hair out of a person's eyes and from touching the hat. It also keep the lice in place if a person scratched their head and then reached into a serving bowl or platter. Eww!
Our version is made of white cotton with an embroidered trim. It is fully lined and has ribbons for tying under the chin or to leave hanging at the sides.
White Only! Sizes: S (21" Head), M (22" Head), L (23" Head)
Other coifs are available in the Hats and Headwear section.
