Faldbúningur 18th Century
Faldbúningur is the oldest form of Icelandic folk costume, and had gone out of use by around 1850, but has been to some extent revived today. It was also the starting point for most of the other forms. It is characterized by a large white headpiece that curves forward. This was called the krókfaldur.

In the mid to latter 18th cent, the high headdress began to be replaced by a stocking cap with a large tube and tassel (tail cap), which was adapted from the men’s costume. | Sources: [x] [x] [x]
