    The demi-ceint belt is a feminine belt that appeared in the 14th century and became very common in the 15th century.
    It can be made of leather, woven in wool or silk, or of leather covered with velvet.
    At each end of the belt, two metal pieces called "capsulae", more or less elaborate, are attached by a chain. The adjustment is done by a hook directly on the chain which can be long and finished by a decorative pendant at its end.
