Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_02 : Les Coiffes

Another lovely pairing. Notice the "coiffes" on their heads. This is traditional headgear for Breton women. Women would create these lace coiffes that would be passed down the generations. Every region of Brittany has its own lace pattern, so that you could identify where a gal came from, simply by checking out her coiffe. Coiffes are only worn for special occaisions now.
