|Other information||Some of the known Portuguese headkerchiefs used in the past by women in agricultural work and countryfied tasks, had different patterns and colours. They came in square shape in red, black or yellow cotton fabric and exhibited different patterns. These patterns are usually printed in one colour, in contrast to the scarf field. Today, many of these patterns are gone, with very few rescued for reproduction that serves the purpose of ethnographic and folklore representations.|
