Tottenham Quakers

Cloaks and shawls

Cloaks were worn before the shawl became fashionable in 1800, the shawl being one of the fashions which Quaker women soon adopted for its simplicity. The plain shawl would have three folds at the back of the neck, be pinned at the shoulder and the points would hang down at the centre front.
