Henna Dyed Head Scarf

The head scarves of the berber women of central Anti Atlas are woven from wool with supplementary cotton weave and tassels and henna is added for decoration along the edges. Notice that the henna dyes the wool but not the cotton. Small, colorful wool balls and spools are tacked along the edges and at the very center for extra pizzazz.
