  • Shawl


    An Azerbaijani bride with an engagement shawl. A shawl (from shāl, which may be from duśālā, ultimately from Sanskrit: शाटी śāṭī) is a simple item of clothing, loosely worn over the shoulders, upper body and arms, and sometimes also over the head. It is usually a rectangular or square piece of cloth, which is often folded to make a triangle but can also be triangular in shape. Other shapes include oblong shawls.

    Tzitzit (; plural tsitsiyot) are specially knotted ritual fringes, or tassels, worn in antiquity by Israelites and today by observant Jews and Samaritans.

Ṣiṣiyot), Spanish and Mediterranean (i. e., Sephardic): tzitzit; European and Yiddish (i. e., Ashkenazi): tzitzis; Yemenite (i. e., Temani): ṣiṣith; Samaritan: ṣeṣet.
