After the wedding ceremony, the crown was taken off. The head was covered with the three-part headdress. The chin and cheeks were hidden with the mundangs  –– the mouth scarf. A second scarf was tied across the forehead in two knots. The new wives outfit included a short jacket, a large woollen shawl around her shoulders, a pleated skirt, a white apron, white socks and pastalas on her feet. Photo by: Axel Olai Heikel, 1902.
