Hungarian beaded headdress PARTA from Kalotaszeg region - blue

Hand made Hungarian headdress named parta originated from Kalotaszeg area from Transylvania.

It is heavily decorated with multicolored beads on blue velvet. It has satin red ties to tie it.



The girls wear a párta, an ornately decorated headpiece on their heads, which covers the forehead but leaves the top of the head uncovered. The párta was worn on holidays and special occasions, and was valued as the symbol of maidenhood. This meaning is expressed in the saying that a girl “stayed in her párta”, that is to say, she remained an old maid. The most beautiful kinds of maiden’s headdresses were worn in the district of Sárköz, in Debrecen, in the villages of Kalotaszeg, and in Torockó.
