A keffiyeh covered the head and hung down the neck. It was secured in place by a skullcap or turban, which in Zakhara was called an agal and in Anauroch an igal. A keffiyeh served the practical purpose of protecting the head from the sun and the wind and was often white to avoid absorbing heat.
Length, color, and style varied considerably between tribes, cities, and even families.
