The Handmaids , most notably portrayed by Elisabeth Moss (Offred) and Alexis Bledel (Ofglen) are a class of women in the Republic of Gilead. They are the most important - but also the most oppressed - class of women in Gilead, as they are tasked with breeding and thus supplying Gilead with more children.

Complete Handmaid Costume Guide
The coif that handmaids wear in The Handmaid's Tale is a Elizabethan inspired white coif . It is custom made exclusively for the show by costume designer Ane Crabtee.
You have three options:
1- Make your own coif from white cotton fabric (recommended for DIYers) - tutorial here
2- Buy this Americana bonnet (not recommended)
3- Buy this cheap Lady Pilgrim Costume and use the bonnet only (recommended for easy costume)
In any case, don't forget to fold the band just like in the show !
