      IMHO, yes, with other culture like the English and French that was
      true. THe hats found in the Codex though, I believe that was some
      typ of cording or a braid. Though I am curious of the wool ruffle
      Elyn mentioned. I posted some pictures from some German art from
      near the time era that show decorated fillets that appear to be
      cording. THere are also a few folios from the Manesse Codex, to
      include one that shows a gopherred veil. It looks very different
      than the "pork pie hats" do. Again, just MHO.
