When they are old, women entirely
wrap their head, including the chin, in white cloth called touailles.
The touaille is a narrow yet very long piece of cloth which is
part of the bride's trousseau and is useful in the whole house as dusters,
napkins, hand towels, saddling clothes, bandages... They can also be used to
wrap up food or precious objects.
Attached to the belt, it becomes an apron, like the one on this
picture, worn by the servant witnessing Saint Peter's Abjuration, in La Brigue.
