The iconic men’s head-dress, the ghitra, comes decorated with fringe work along the edges. This fringe work, called tahdeeb and done by hand, was executed by female embroiderers who carefully decorated the fringes with small bunches of cotton or silk tied in a knots and cut to form tassels.

Styles and finishings included alyasmina, alrazjeyah, and hees.
