Cloak demi-circular
Cloak also called mantel in the shape of a half circle. It exists throughout the Middle Ages.
In the 13th century it was reserved for nobles (men and women) to show their status, it was a ceremonial garment which was always lined.
The length is between mid-calf and ankles.
The cloak is closed by a cord or a ribbon woven and tied on each side of the opening. Depending on the position of the closure, a hood can be created with the fold of the fabric.

The sleeves are loose on the upper arm, but once past the elbow they become very tight on the forearm which has little buttons.

- with or without lining
