About rogozhin & historical sources

Broadleaf cattail, also known as bulrush, is a perfect plait material. It is harvested after first ground frost in October and November. Next, broadleaf cattail has to be desiccated and peeled from dirty outer layers.

Among straw hats , broadleaf cattail can be used to make baskets and other containers. Unfortunately, broadleaf cattail is a hardly available material. This craft is slowly disappearing.

An example of a medieval hat from straw can be found in Maciejowski Bible on page presenting the meeting of Ruth and Boaz.
