Bollenhut - Baden-Württemberg, Germany

Part of traditional Schwarzwald (Black Forest) women costume is Bollenhut, a straw hat with wool pom-poms. Married women wear black pom-poms, unmarries girls wear red ones. These hats are worn in the three neighbouring Black Forest villages of Gutach, Kirnbach and Reichenbach since around 1750.

Also a stamp featuring Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (known in many countries as Felix Mendelssohn), famous German composer, pianist, organist and conductor.
