Crowning Glory of a Turban with Double Sided Embroidery

The absolutely mind-boggling craft of double sided embroidery on a turban!

Maybe this will be one step forward in eradicating the gender bias… in a century or so maybe all men all over the world will be wearing beautiful artful & colorful clothes!

    All the turban cloths I have are tie dye. Some with gold or brass ends. I found them in an old shop in jodpher. Light thin heavily starched.
