Product description


Cachené is a traditional wool or cotton headscarf, printed with geometric or simple floral decorations, framed by a plain border that, very often, matches the background color of the scarf. It was used by Portuguese women in different occasions, but mostly in festive days.

They are very common in the fishery town of Nazaré, but they are popular in many other regions, most of the time covering women heads.
Different colors, patterns, or even ways of wearing them are associated with various social functions, such as work, celebration, ceremony, or even mourning.
The word “cachené” comes from the French: cache-nez

These days, folkloric groups, both in Portugal and within Portuguese communities worldwide, known as 'rancho folclóricos', are devoted to preserving and showcasing Portuguese cultural traditions. They act as guardians of Portuguese traditional costumes, playing a crucial role in safeguarding materials that might otherwise fade away over time. These beautiful shawls serve as living examples of this commitment.

USES: This beautiful piece of fabric maybe be used to recreate the traditional shawls, but you can also get more creative and use this lovely fabric to make home decor projects, clothes, jewelry, or any DIY crafts.
