Antique Ottoman Empire woven headdress with antique coins (mostly silver) and beads. Hand crafted from hand woven fabrics with intricate detailing and design.
A bride would have worn this cap underneath her veil on the first day of a three-day wedding ceremony. In a tradition that continues to this day, she is carried in a parade to the groom's home, where the celebration takes place with food, music and dancing. This hat also called a "money hat" incorporates both ancient and more recent coins.
