Ochipok

Ochipok   

The ochipok is a married woman's headdress as part of traditional Ukrainian folk dress, often decorated with Ukrainian embroidery. It is a cap that covers the entire head with a slit in the back and laces that pull it tightly around the head.

They were mainly worn by women in the middle Dnieper River region, including the Left-Bank and steppe areas, however the ochipok was also used in other regions of Ukraine. It is thought to have originated during the Hetmanate period. The specific characteristics of the ochipok varied from region to region.
