Pennant, medieval headscarf, natural
This rectangular scarf is made of cotton fabric. The edges are provided with a rolled hem. It can be tied as a pennant or headscarf for medieval representation.
Wearing headdresses was common for married women in the Middle Ages (which is where the phrase get under the hood comes from).
There were various techniques to put on the pennant. It was wrapped around the forehead, chin and back of the head and always covered the hair.
Historical representations of a pennant can be found, for example, in the World Chronicle - The Knitter - Charlemagne, an illuminated parchment manuscript written around 1300 by Rudolf of Ems, or in the Maciejowski Bible (also Crusader Bible), a picture Bible from the 13th century.
