“Water Flowers” Silk Veil
Medieval head and hair covering
You could spend forever here: mottled sunlight reaches through the willows as ripples of water lap against the riverbank in a gentle rhythm. You would give anything for more quiet afternoons together, to spend your life with her airy smile and musical laugh. It feels fleeting yet timeless, every second with her is a moment caught in time.
Our “Water Flowers” collection is feminine and airy, featuring designs inspired by medieval clothing, Elvish imagery, mythology, and Art Nouveau. The whole collection will make the wearer feel beautiful and evokes a sense of relaxed romance, which will inspire you to go for scenic walks with the one you love along mossy riverbanks and enjoy the natural beauty.
This particular piece is actually quite historically inspired and is very simple. It is made from 100% natural fine silk and measures 1.5m x 1.5m with tiny rolled hems to prevent fraying. It is incredibly light and will dance in the wind if not secured, which makes it look very graceful. This is a simple accessory that can be worn in a number of ways to give you a very medieval feel.
Though we now associate veils with weddings, they were an absolute essential to any class of person in the middle ages. Women were expected to have their hair covered with either a veil, wimple, hat or a combination of them to avoid her hair being visible, as they would be immodest. Loose hair was something you would see on girls or very young women who were unmarried.
There are a number of ways to accessorize and wear a veil! It can simply be left to catch the breeze behind you, or wrapped around your neck like a scarf or styled into a more complex head covering. It can be worn with a crown or circlet, or simply pinned in place. This kind of veil suits a noblewoman, middle-class townswoman, bride, or princess, depending on how you choose to wear it.
