Main types of medieval gothic capes

As a rule, medieval gothic winter cloaks were made from wool since it protected well from the cold and were affordable. Although woolen gothic capes were worn by the poor and the rich, the latter had a more excellent range of textures, colors, and styles for capes. Later, gothic cloaks began to be created from other materials, including:

Silk, taffeta, and velvet: when Italian silk craftsmen began working with fabrics brought from Asia, they created fabrics such as taffeta and velvet. Making silk was a longer process. The Italians were masters at creating smooth materials for capes. Such textiles are still used today when sewing gothic women's cloaks.

Linen: it was created from flax. This labor-intensive process made making durable and delicate textiles for cloaks possible. Linen is more expensive than wool, but it was considered the second most popular material for gothic short capes in the Middle Ages.

Fur: This material was common but not particularly popular for creating cloaks as it was considered barbaric. Later, it became indispensable for the finishing and lining of medieval capes.
