An Old Fashioned Bonnet Rich in History

Bonnets have a long and storied history across many cultures. In Medieval Europe, bonnets were worn by both men and women to keep their heads warm. The exact styling indicated social class and wealth. The rich wore elaborate bonnets embellished with jewels and fine materials. Peasants wore plain bonnets crafted from sackcloth or straw.

As fashions evolved, women’s bonnets became more elaborate. The crown and brim provided ample space to showcase the luxury textiles, ribbons, and trims of the day. Affluent women wore bonnets outdoors and for formal occasions. Working class women also wore more modest versions for sun protection and warmth.

By the 18th century, bonnets with wide brims were popularized by the Quakers and Puritans immigrating to America. The expansive brims shielded their fair complexions from the harsh sun. This style came to typify the female settlers and pioneers bravely traversing the new frontier.

Over time, bonnets evolved into accessory worn by women and girls of all classes. At once practical and fashionable, they adorned women from all walks of life. The Skeleteen vintage black bonnet embodies the pioneer spirit of courageous women who shaped America’s history.
