Medieval-Houppelande
 
 

Period: late 15th century

In the following we would like to present two houppelandes made of brocade, velvet and silk.

Houppelandes were a kind of outer garment or overcoat that was worn by both men and women from the end of the 14th to the late 15th century throughout Europe.


We crafted the following cream-colored houppelande from an antique brocade fabric with the typical ornament of the late Burgundian epoch. It is cut with a high raised waistline that is emphasized by a golden antique metal belt. The décolletage, the trailing sleeves and the wide skirt are edged with 'fur'*.

 

This houppelande of green velvet has been crafted for the bestselling author Andrea Schacht. She ordered it for her reading tour of her successful novel 'Der dunkle Spiegel [The Dark Mirror]'.
