The Bollenhut is a ladies' hat topped with pom-poms and has been part of the traditional costume worn by women in three neighbouring Black Forest villages (Gutach, Kirnbach, and Reichenbach) since around 1750. Young unmarried girls wear hats with red "pompoms" (hmmmm) and married women hats with black ones. Traditional costumes are still worn today on certain public holidays and in processions and folkloric events in many places in the Black Forest.
