White Muffin Cap


Muffin caps or mob caps were circular caps worn by women from the sixteenth century onwards. Originally they were of a very informal style, but eventually they evolved into a high-fashion item as part of the adoption of simple "country" clothing during the 18th century. During the French Revolution, the name "Mob Cap" caught on because the poorer women who were involved in the riots wore them. These types of headress remained in use as the head covering of servants and nurses as part of their uniforms well into the 20th century. You can easily adjust the look of the cap to your dress using a ribbon, bow or other decorations.
Made of 100% cotton.
