Linen Elizabethan Coif with Lace - Renaissance - 16th century England

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Fancy enough for court! Our version is made of white linen with contoured sides and front to flatter the face. It has a small lace trim around the edges and it is fully lined.

It has a casing and middy braid for tying so it can be gathered at the bottom to be worn tied in the back (which makes more room for a bun and holds the sides back and closer to the head) or tied under the chin which brings the sides forward toward the face.

One size fits all

We ship via USPS Priority Mail - Insured for safety and so that you will receive it in 2-3 days once the package is posted; plus, you can track its progress on-line.

Plain coifs are available in the Hats and Headwear section of our shop:

Historical Note: Popular Elizabethan England, this style of coil was worn by females. Many paintings show it either worn alone or under a cap.
