Soft Yellow Floral Scarf
There is much lore surrounding folk shawls and their uses in Europe.
Depending on the pattern of the shawl, color, materials, and even how the shawl is tied, one could figure a woman's general age, marital status, social status, and what village they lived in.
Traditionally, folk shawls/kerchiefs were worn to cover the head, shoulders and even around the waist in some cases. Many vintage shawls (such as this), are made entirely of wool with printed designs of flowers. They are valued in winter for keeping the wearer warm and being durable. Larger shawls were used to cover the body, or to decorate tables or other household surfaces.
