Keffiyeh (also seen as keffiyah) were the traditional headcloths worn by inhabitants of Zakhara, Calimshan, and the Arnaden region.[2][3][4]


A keffiyeh covered the head and hung down the neck.[3] It was secured in place by a skullcap or turban,[3] which in Zakhara was called an agal.[2] A keffiyeh served the practical purpose of protecting the head from the sun and the wind.[3]

Length, color, and style varied considerably between tribes, cities, and even families.[2]

Price Edit

Price varied depending on quality: simple cloth keffiyeh sold for 3 cp and fine silk ones sold for up to 10 gp.[5]
