Lenght: 45 cm

Width: 44 cm


A most original old Berber headscarf -Ilbed n´Tislatin or Ilbed n´Tghri- from the group of the Aït Atta in the Moroccan High Atlas. Tie-dyed wool. Though it is sometimes described as a bread cover its use is quite different. It is worn during the wedding celebrations as a headscarf tied with green silk straps and silver chains. It is very likely that its owner only wore it once at her wedding. The design of this particular piece is very original which makes it very interesting. Mid-XXth century or earlier.
