a turban and a headwrap. As the gentleman I am costuming
for will be Royal I guess it really was appropriate! Our equivalent
to the Shah, Sultan, Caliph etc., However, as I said he is just not
comfortable in a Turban. He really doesn't much care for
a headwrap either - even if that would seem to be more
acceptable. It seems he gets extremely warm about
the head and layers of cloth make him very, very uncomfortable.

and cooler to the head........I understand a one strand cord (filet),
is there a colour restriction for that? He does agree with me that
it feels more mediaeval to have something on the head - he just
doesn't want to be miserable in it.
Apparently he is about 1000 C.E. Persian. You also mentioned a
cap? Rather like the short Fez, embroidered type?
