Exhibition "Russian folk hats for women"

    The headdress is one of the most important components of the Russian folk costume, and it was its appearance that could tell about the age of the owner, her family and social status. Luxurious women's hats were made from the best fabrics, decorated with pearls, beads, sequins, gold and silver embroidery.
    The exhibition includes catalogs, research, popular publications. The illustrated catalog prepared by G.A. Grigorieva, "Headdresses of the Russian North in the collections of museums in the Arkhangelsk region" (Severodvinsk, 2018). It features 1,068 historical headdresses that were used in the Russian North. The author of the catalog has done a lot of research work on their identification, attribution and classification. The ensemble of Russian folk costume and the meaning of the female headdress is readily described in the book by N.T. Klimova "Russian folk girls' holiday hats of the 18th - early 20th centuries."
