Also called a ghutrah.  Traditional Arab head dress.



In back stitch.
Image from Dubai Graphic Encyclopedia. A great resource.

Your stitching is so clean. What are you going to do with it? Did you stitch it up for someone?

I'm not sure yet where I'm going with this... I have a few more similar images of the different styles of head dress.  I might make a series.  I am in the process of documenting my impressions of living in the Gulf. If you look back into other things I have posted you will find a few more impressions.
