Fez Hat

The fez is a red short cylinder with a tassel on the top of it. It was popularized during Ottoman period, but still is an icon of Ottoman culture. Fez was used in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and North Africa, so it's unclear where were its origins. It was a regular part of uniforms of many countries and today is mostly exotic fashion item and part of national costumes.
