women's caps

We visited the Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen today, and learned all there is to tell about the people who once lived on the shores of the Zuiderzee. The exhibitions focus on the themes of water, craft and communities. One of the rooms in the indoor museum showed a variety of folk costumes that people from several fishing towns used to wear in the past, and in some cases even wear today. The caps on the photo are made of lace and belong to the traditional folk costume for women. In Dutch a cap like this is called 'hul'.
