If you are in different medieval LARP and reenactment groups, you can make a lot of different color combinations with a few left and right sides. The hood is a piece of clothing that was worn in medieval Europe between the 12th and 14th centuries. Originally, farmers mainly wore it against the cold and rain, but later it became a fashion piece of clothing and it took on special shapes. The chaperon "Dangereuse" is made of a heavy wool fabric with a deep color, suitable for all weather conditions. From the 11th to the 16th century, the "mi-parti" (partially colored) style of dress was popular, connecting two different colored fabrics in the middle. The effect is a color contrast that often creates a dramatic look. In the Middle Ages, Mi-parti was an important style among cloaks, tabards, dresses, trousers and dresses. The earliest examples of this style date back to the 9th and 10th centuries, where the split colors were used on legs and shoes. For example, the boots were half one color and half the other color. In the High Middle Ages, the mi parti style grew in popularity as color symbolism in clothing became more important. The colors often stood for a certain status or a certain connection. The style became more common in the 13th and 14th centuries when many men, especially vassals, imitated the coats of arms of their feudal lords. Towards the end of the 16th century, the style gradually declined.
