The "Manton de Manila" is one of the most famous women's clothing of Spain, normally associated with the Flamenco, where the bailaora makes it swirl with skill and sensuality.
This Spanish shawl can be worn in various ways, but usually bends in two, or on the tip (en pico) along the diagonal to give it the shape of the triangle, or en cuadrado, joining the two parallel sides, and then pass it, in both cases , on the shoulders with the two ends resting on the arms, so as to enhance the embroidery and the invoice of the manton.
