They were common during in medieval Europe, especially the hoody ones. They have periodic returns to fashion – today they are a wardrobe staple and they are permanent.

In past centuries, women were frequently wearing cape. These capes had various of styles such as short (over the shoulders or to the waist) or long ones. Short capes generally were made of fur. Today furs are less accepted in fashion world. In modern world, capes are made of silk, velvet and tulle.

If you check my online store, you can see my handmade cape tulle designs. Tulle capes were one of the first products I designed for my website  ( www.loveinrome.it)
