Headscarf with MNEMEE from Kalymnos. The women wore it with the traditional costume of the island as well as with costumes of the wider area of the Dodecanese, in Greece. This scarf is decorated with stamped floral motifs and the characteristic “eagle” in its corners. The headscarves were stamped by craftsmen or by the women themselves, with colors they got from herbs and flowers found in nature. They used the same headscarf both in color and in patterns, for the “ornamentation” of their head, in graceful ways of tying and delightful hairstyles.
We find them nowadays as modern ones, exactly as they were, combining the traditional headbands of another era and the deep desire to revive the style of every woman. Renew your personal style by discovering new headbands and by creating so many more, not only by completing the looks but also by highlighting the confidence of the modern woman.
