History of the fichu (pronounced fishoo or feeshoe)

   

The fichu dates back to 1878 when Edouard Manet painted Portrait of a Lady with Black Fichu .

It was known as Manet's

Modern Mona Lisa .

Defined in the dictionary as a three-cornered lace or muslin cape worn over the shoulders by women , our feather-like, lacey accent softens any neckline and compliments everything you wear!

Here are some personal thoughts from Laurie, owner of It's a Fichu.

“I choose each fichu creation as I do painting my favorite flower on a
canvas.  Choosing each color and texture, experimenting with the size and
gauge are challenging.  Each fichu is unique.  The pattern is my own
technique.  The end result is a delicate fashion accent, like the WINGS OF
ANGELS, handmade with love and joy!”
