The Guildsmen & their Wives – The Haberdasher
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.
A Haberdasher, a Dyer, a Carpenter
A Weaver and a Carpet-maker were
Among our ranks.
One of the grandest looking Guildsmen. Our Haberdasher wears a short but richly patterned tunic in terracotta, while his excellent, fashionably draped turban hat is in two shades of soft and dark brown.
Even his regal hand wave adds to the impression of his own importance!
