Silk was the popular material used by the rich class of the society mainly to show off their wealth. If the girl was from a poor family, then the girls and their female relations wore simple clothes made from cotton, linen, wool and lesser coarser fibers.

Girls wore a flower and ribbon trimmed hats or bonnets. Puce, plum, scarlet red and navy were the strong colors worn.
