Tricky indeed. And I remember how hard it was to find a chapel veil even in Rome!
I love my veils. I wish I could find some combs as well. They keep the veils on my head.
Perhaps a fashion designer can craft shoulder veils, too. No?
Denita, you should not have trouble finding them in Spain, they're called "peinetas" (pronounced "pay net as". There is a special shop in Valencia called "la casa de las ollas de hierro" (the house of the iron cauldrons or dutch ovens) the name is a bit misleading because that was it's first merchandise but now you can find anything that is related to catholic practice. In Madrid there a few shops around the Plaza Mayor where you can find them, as well as in other cities like Seville Malaga etc. but I don't know them.
We veil that which is sacred, as the Tabernacle was veiled from the sight of the Hebrews, and the face of Moses when he had been face to face with God.
Well, if you can't make it to certain chic little boutiques in Barcelona, then you can always come to my place. www.RosaMysticaMantilla.com
