This Treasure is an Antique Hand-Woven Wool Skull Cap, hat and has many different names depending on where one is in the Middle East. This pattern can be of nomadic origin. Many many men always cover their heads by wearing a skullcap signifying prayer or a religion or to simply keep the sun off one’s head.
Handmade of 100% wool stitches (I am not familiar with the name of this particular kind of stitch). So Very Strong yet supple enough to fold in quarters. The colors span a beautiful range of Ivory, Blue, Green, Black, Ecru and Burnt Orange. There are (2) wonderful tassels created with braided cords and flat “pompons” on the end. There is a stitch that holds the two cords in place so that they don’t flop around.
Measurements: 18” round in diameter measured at the bottom which is the widest point. There are (2) Embellishment Tassels, one in ecru and the other in blue, measuring 5 1/4” L and 4 1/4” L.
Most Excellent Condition. No stains or odors. Hand wash in cold water & a mild soap or dry clean.
