Nemes


The Nemes is the striped head cloth worn by pharaohs and nobility in ancient Egypt.


Most famously seen on King Tutankhamun burial mask 


The Nemes extension to the typical Egyptian headcloth or kerchief worn by many ancient Egyptians it covers the whole crown shoulders and drapes down past the the neck. Each side are 2 large flats which should hang down behind the ears past both shoulders on to the chest.


.All the images I've seen also show striped fabric.


.Like this one they also can include a decorated crown.
