Turkoman, Embroidered Skull Cap

From Uzbekistan or Northern Aghanistan (where we found it) a round Turkoman embroidered "pill box" skullcap.

Fully hand embroidered incorporating fine coloured cords couched with spaced stitches creating "dotted lines" with a half of the stitching.

The interior is a plain blue cottton that has been hand quilted for reinforcemnent.

The top which has received the most sun is slightly faded and the rim which got the most wear is a little frayed.

This and the other two we have just received (TS101 & TS 102) are older and used not newly made Tourist ones.

As such you have to way a little wear as proof of age and wear.

However, they are still in pretty good condition.
