The fez is the typical Arabic hat in the shape of a short red cylinder. Historians believe it was manufactured in the city of Fes, in Morocco, during the 17th century. It has been used as a head cover of the Arabic world for centuries and was also adopted by the Ottoman Empire as part of its military uniform. The fez is still the most ordinary hat in North Africa and the Middle East; the hat was banned at the starting of 20th century in Turkey.
