A headgear made of a length of fabric wound about the head in a variety of distinctive ways.

Turbans are worn by men (most commonly) and women in various parts of the world for practical reasons, to denote traditional religious and cultural identity, and as a fashion accessory.

In traditional societies turbans may be worn every day or only for ceremonial occasions, the colour and styling reflecting faith, social status, and even belonging to a certain region, village or family; and within  families, an elder brother may wear a different colour or style to the younger brother.  Plain and intricately worked fabrics may be used, wound simply or highly elaborately.
