Mi’kmaq (aboriginal ethnic group of Canada) headdresses – Mi’kmaq peaked cap, 1845-1855, and Mi’kmaq cap, 1900-1910. Both photos are from The McCord Museum. Lovely ornate headpieces!
Ukrainian traditional headdresses, the 19th – early 20th century. On the left, you can see maiden’s headwear – various ribbons, wreaths, etc. On the right, are married women’s headpieces – coifs which were worn either as a separate piece or underneath a kerchief or wimple.
Scythian traditional headdress of a royal woman and her jewelry, the 5th-4th century B.C. The headdress is a reconstruction, and gold decorations are archaeological finds from the territory of modern Ukraine.
One-of-a-kind wedding wreath from Ukraine. It is made from dyed wooden shavings and foil; the frame is of wire. The wooden shavings are arranged into cute flower shapes – wonderful idea for eco-friendly accessories (as there was no plastic available for villagers in the 19th century). This particular wreath is a modern replica of authentic headdress used in Ukraine in the 19th – early 20th century.
Several variations of Ukrainian traditional coif called “ochipok” for married women, the late 19th – early 20th century. Usually, these coifs were worn under a kerchief or wimple, but some part of them were visible – that’s why they’re rather decorative. These are made from silk or brocade fabric.
Various hairstyles and headdresses of Ukrainian women, the first half of the 20th century. These women are from different regions of Ukraine, some are married and some aren’t (according to their headwear). Unfortunately, the photos are black&white, so you can’t see the colors. It’s interesting to compare the facial structure of these ladies as well.
