French hood – women’s headdress that was widespread in Europe in the 16th century. It is a stiff sort of headband of a rounded shape. The French hood also has a black veil attached to the back. It is worn over a coif. This one is a modern reconstruction.

Ukrainian festive women’s headdresses. Central Ukraine, the beginning of the 20th century. The first one is a headwrap of a married woman. The second one is a bridal wreath worn on top of a kerchief. The third one is also a bridal wreath but a bit simpler than the previous headpiece.

Female caps from the 18th century. The linen biggin on the left is British and from The Met in New York. Biggins were caps worn alone or as a foundation under another headdress. Although, children most often wore them alone. And on the right, from the V&A, is a cap made from crochet linen or wool.

Delicate bridal wreath. The frame is made from wire; wax flowers and beads serve as adornments. Because of the wire, the elements move and the headpiece appears to shimmer and flutter.

Very pretty female headdress from Tulchyn district, Vinnytsia region of Ukraine, the end of the 19th century. The set consists of a coif called “ochipok” and a rectangular piece of cloth called “namitka” wrapped around the head. You can see beautiful embroidery on the top part of the ochipok. And the namitka is made from very thin and delicate handmade fabric; it also has a decorative border woven into the cloth.
