Traditional Mens Headwear
Whereas in the history of womens clothes in Russia the headwear was first of all a decoration and a tribute to traditions (a married woman had to cover her hair completely), for men it was an indicator of their social status. The higher ones headgear was, the higher position its owner took in the society (hence is the saying similar to the English Such a big cap fits the big chap!). Serfs, on the contrary, did not cover their heads.

National Russian Dress
We know our predecessors by their tales, songs and legends, as well as by a great variety of original clothes and household things created mainly by some unknown talents. When looking at ancient holiday garments of peasantry one cannot help wondering at their unusual harmony and power of life emanating from these things and their ability to hand down the visible image of our ancestors and convey their spiritual essence to us.
About Wedding Dress of Russian Brides
Wedding garments in Old Rus used to be very colourful, the red being the major wedding colour. White was considered the colour of sanctity and was not used in festivities. In many regions the bride had two wedding gowns: one to wear before the marriage service and the other to put on after it.
