Dark blue woolen garde-corps
inspired by illuminations in Codex Manesse (1300-1320). In the
period between the second half of 13th and early 15th centuries it
was in the western Europe a wide spread sort of overcoat, worn by
both men and women. It used to have typical, long and wider,
nearly rectangular sleeves with slits on their front
side, looser cut and often a hood. The gown is made form 100% cut
wool, nearly all hand-made.
