The Haapsalu Shawl, an extremely fine knitted shawl that can be pulled through a woman’ ring, has been the symbol of Haapsalu for more than a century. Ever since then, including today, these shawls have been highly regarded by women. The knitters of the traditional shawls are professionals - the skill is passed down from generation to generation. In the Shawl Museum, you can see a permanent exhibition on the past and present of the Haapsalu Shawl, examine the extremely fine patterns, and buy one of the masterpieces for yourself.
In the summer, local shawl knitters hold trainings and workshops.

Haapsalu Shawls have been presented as gifts to the women of the Swedish Royal Family as well as the honoured guests of the President of Estonian.
