The Guildsmen & their Wives – The Dyer
Chaucer mentions the specific Guilds in his prologue, and when we first introduced a generic Guildsman and his Wife we realised there was huge scope for us to work with each of the named Guilds allowing us an exciting choice of costume especially for the wives. As it says in the Prologue: They had the capital and revenue,/Besides their wives declared it was their due./And if they did not think so, then they ought;/To be called Madam is a glorious thought.
Each seemed a worthy burgess, fit to grace
A guild-hall with a seat upon the dais.
As with our other guildsmen and women, The Dyer is shown wearing as many colours as possible, showing-off his dyeing prowess and skills.
His hat is a stylish turban shape in coral, trimmed with a dark brown beaver brim.
