Egyptian Kerchief

Egyptian Kerchief head covering is based on an actual remains recovered from tombs

The fabric has one straight edge about 60 cm long and rounded off back edge measuring 45 cm front to back and then the tape is about 80mm long. I made 10 of these for a lrp event in an afternoon from scraps of fabric.

Having made these I think the front to back measurement should be increased perhaps to 50cm

The fabric is wrapped around the forehead, tied at the back of the head and then draped over.

And provides a nice simple head covering which protects the back of the head from the sun.
