MANTILLA Y PEINETA, VEIL AND COMB








 Mantilla is a lace scarf or shawl usually worn over a high comb called peineta. 
It belongs to Spain traditions but is worn in many other countries. 
Mantillas are made of lace or sheer fabric with lace trim. 
A mantilla can be worn as a head veil or, more dramatically, 
over a high comb or tiara for special occasions.
During Holy Week  spanish women wear black mantillas 
and beautiful peinetas with classical black attire.
