Russian high hat “Murmolka”

Traditional headdress of Moscow Streltsy.
Each regiment was assigned a certain color of high hats. Among them there were various shades of red, green, blue and yellow.
High hats of Strelets practically did not differ from folk headdresses. They were felted from colored wool and in the winter versions they were trimmed with fur: for ordinary strelets – sheepskin, and for the “initial people” – sable.
A distinctive sign in the form of a pearl image of a crown was sewn onto the caps of the archery chiefs. The headdresses of the archery standard-bearers had a small opening above the forehead and were not trimmed with fur.
