You can’t argue with the instant glamour of a turban. Popular throughout the twentieth century (and at various points of previous history), pretty much every decade from the 1920s onwards had its own way of styling them. I especially love the 1970s deco-revival which saw a big resurgence of turbans in popular culture. Can anyone beat that picture of Barbara Streisand for perfection? I can’t begin to describe how much I love it! We’re hoping to have some turbans for sale in the shop soon so keep your eyes peeled for an update :-)
And have a look at this cute guide to tying a turban from the 1940s – those wartime ladies were not going to let hat rationing get in the way of looking the business.
