A popular style of headdress worn by Late-Middle Ages and Renaissance women, The Atifet was developed in France. Of cloth and linen construction, The Atifet was noted for it's “heart shaped” front (designed to accentuate the face of the wearer). They “peaked” at the front to also create the appearance of a “long face”. Often seen in White, sometimes pearls or other small precious jewels and stones were inset into the material. By the 16th Century (in England), Catherine of Aragon (future Queen of England under King Henry VIII), made the Atifet very popular. The average woman – however, did not wear them.
