As peasants made up some 85 percent of medieval people in feudal societies, their livelihoods and character types were quite diverse. Peasant families lived primarily in the countryside or small villages where they worked the land for food and other resources. Given the nature of their livelihood and social standing, medieval clothing for peasants were modest and unembellished. Early medieval clothing was typically made from coarse wool and hemp cloth. They wore stockings or tunics. sheepskin cloaks and woolen hats. Their boots were made of leather with wooden soles.
