At the Farmers' Market - Historic American Seeds and Plant Catalogs from Smithsonian Institution Libraries




1600s-1800s - A few truly fetching European turbans



1615 Robert Peake the Elder (c. 1551–1619) Lady Elizabeth Pope, wearing a draped mantle and matching turban


One of my favorite turbans predates the 18C Turquerie style.  It is Robert Peake's dark turban of 1615 seen above.  Turbans regained popularity in the early 19C, when the style of painting was called Orientalism.  The tied turban was most popular in women's fashions in the 1790s & the early 1800s.  Larger turbans of later decades of the 19C, as well as the elaborate hairstyles necessitated a pre-formed headdress, such as the one seen below.
