- The "g?onnella", sometimes also referred to as a "faldetta", was a form of women's hooded cloak, unique to the islands of Malta and Gozo. It was generally made of black cotton or silk, and it covered the Maltese ladies from head to toe when they went outdoors, but did not cover the face. While walking, the wearer would hold one or both sides of the "g?onnella" in her hands.
