Turban

Definition: Turban


Turban

n. Fabric wound around head. Of Muslim origin. Hat made in this design, fully covering head. Turbans were originally invented to keep cool in the desert heat. The long strip of cloth was soaked in water at a well, and then wrapped around the head. This technique was used long before the beginnings of Islamic religions. Contemporary turbans come in many shapes, sizes, and colors.
