The Weaver

The Guildsmen & their Wives – The Weaver

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.

THE WEAVER

Their wisdom would have justified a plan

To make each one of them an alderman

The Weaver was the 33rd figure in the Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales range. He is also one of the only bearded Guildsman and has not only an excellent and intricate feathered hat, but a rather dashing horse as well.

Using additional decoration on his coral over tunic we have intoduced particular detail at the neck and he is also shown wearing a cobalt under garment.
