Turbans have been in use in the Middle East and Islamic worlds for centuries but period literature in how to tie them properly is scant. It is reasoned that this is because the technique is passed down in tradition and from father to son in those cultures.
But modern people wear turbans, as well, to events both formal and otherwise. Turbans are of further, invaluable, use if you find yourself in a desert and in need of a sun-shielding head covering.
This guide is meant to show you the basic technique of tying a turban properly according to Islamic principles. With many photographs and simple, easy to read steps, it is difficult not to get the principles right on your first try or two.
The author also details the Sikh style of turban which both modern and ancient Sikhs used and how to recreate that look. There is even a pattern for the turban cap that fits under the traditional wrapping.
This guide in learning how to wrap a turban is much like a guide in the proper way to loop your tie - it will always be invaluable to you.
