Long underpants used in middle ages, tied with a string at the waist and at the bottom of the legs. Worn under the early type of hose
Long underpants used in middle ages, tied with a string at the waist and at the bottom of the legs. Worn under the early type of hose, and thanks to the four trimmed holes, they can be tied to them. This is one of the basic elements of historical attire, however, contrary to appearances, in the past it was not as widely used as it is today. Visible in many medieval sources, among others, they can be found in the Maciejowski Bible or illustrations from the Ducal Palace – Dijon.
Do not be fooled by medieval images where you can see snow-white underwear even on peasants and the worst knave. Natural linen will brighten over time, especiallywhen exposed sunlight. Iconography should always be looked at with caution and deeper understanding.
Like all our clothing it can be hand or machine stiched. However, we always follow the principle to finish visible elements manually.
