    Default What is Northern Albanian men traditional head covering origin?

    Why northern Albanian traditional dressing includes something basically the same as turbans that Beduines or Berbers from Northern Africa have? It is not seen anywhere in Europe outside of Albania.



    Albanian



    Beduine, Berber



    This is serious question so I would like to read serious answers if possible, thanks.

    Don't know it looks either Arabian Beduin
    African Tuarek
    Or Indian Rajastani

    Unsure about the origin, could be Turkish. But it's not used for sandstorms or shit like that, it was used as a burial shroud when the man wearing it died

    The Albanians, these tigers of mountain wars ... have as their religion rebellion. Even their worst warrior is one of the strongest and bravest on the battle-field, just as if he was a knight on the legendary horse. But he has no horse, nor proper weapons for battle. Instead of the horse, he has a lance which strikes as lightning, he has spears who's points are full of posion as the sting of hornets, he has also a wooden bow with some arrows. Furthermore, he is stronger than iron ...

    It most probably does come from Turkish influence or maybe Albanians picked it up when they were soldiers in the Ottoman army in countries that wore these turbans. You don't have to wear it covering the neck btw
