Shemagh is a square piece of cloth, usually cotton, folded and wrapped in various styles around the head. The significant advantage is that it is made from the natural material that dries quickly, retains heat, but also protects against sun rays.
Often the shemagh is held in place by a loop of string, called "agal." Many people make a turban out of it, or wear loosely draped around his shoulders and back.
There are many ways to wear shemagh. First of all, you can tie it to the neck, entwine in the hair, put on belt, put it into a shirt pocket, put it in pants pocket, to use as a trouser belt. Apart from the traditional turbans or falling loosely over shoulders, you can also tie "a terrorist" shemagh, which is very popular among the tourists going on a quad trip (protection against sun, wind, sand). Shemagh is a universal accessory, the purchase of which will satisfy everyone.
