Pottmyuts or sotmyuts

Country: 
Estonia
Nation: 
Estonians
Female

It is very likely that the prototype of this kind of headdress was the kokoshnik of Central Russia, but now pottmyuts (or sotmyuts) look very distinctively. It is made on the basis of rigid cardboard, covered with silk fabric with floral ornament, and is characteristic of the traditional women’s costume of the area of Laanemaa in the far West of Estonia.
