The tradition of wearing shawls in Estonia reaches far back into the past.
Shawl or a wrap was regarded to be the most valuable garment of a folk costume and to be a part of the festive garment. Wrap was worn in the church during colder seasons and while visiting others. It added festivity as it was double-fold on the arm during warmer seasons. In the 19th century, wrap was part of a bridal suit in some areas, covering the face of the bride on the way to bridegrooms home. It was removed after arrival. Compared to other garments, making of the wrap required a lot more proficiency. Hereby it was taken care of and handed down, as were the skills of making it. The ancient two-width linen and woollen wraps were made by using simple knitting techniques. They were probably white, gray and brown that time – the natural colours of wool. As times went by, herbal dyes were also used for colouring wraps red and blue. Simple hem, tablet-woven bands with colourful patterns, fringe and yarn tassels were used to decorate the welt. Later, different decoration techniques were used: hemstitch, patterns, stripes, squares and other pattern embroidery. Feelings, dreams and wishes were embroidered like spells -stitch by stitch- into the symbols and plaids. This way might was put into the plaid that was supposed to protect the wearer. Depending on the locality, wrap – fore-runner of a plaid – had different names: scarf, woollen ladies’ coverlet, blanket, rain plaid, stole, shawl and others. Our products have different namesresultant of the peculiarity of the locality.
