1. Great image, thenotorious. Since I was unfamiliar the the “u” spelling of “durag” (looked like Turkish to me), I googled it, and found the following in the Wikipedia entry. (Gives you an idea of who wrote *that* entry, huh?)

    “A do rag is also reminiscent of a ‘tichel’: an Israeli style of head covering worn by Orthodox Jewish women. It can be a variety of colours and fabrics, but often it is longer than the average do-rag and tails down the back of the neck. Women who wear the do-rag style tichel often cut their hair short in accordance with Jewish law that stipulates that a woman’s hair must be covered once married. Some women prefer to keep their hair long and tie the tichel in a knot at the back of their head, covering the hair within, this is less like the conventional do-rag. Tichel are colour co-ordinated to match clothing, but on special occasions white is a popular choice.
