This square scarf is a widely-used traditional Middle Eastern headdress. It functions as effective protection from the dangers associated with hot and dry climates. The shemagh’s color, tassel size and placement are all indications of one’s national/tribe origin. The one shown here is strongly associated with Jordan. Additionally, the size and decorations of the shemagh’s tassels are perceived to be an indication of the shemagh’s value and of one’s social status.
