Beaded veils of Egypt
In Egypt, occasionally beaded veils can be found. The Cairo area and the Nile valley have a tradition of light, mesh-like veils (see for instance below left). This tradition can also be seen in the rare beaded veils. In the background photo and the top left image, two beaded veils can be seen. These veils are very small and probably originate from the Sinai Peninsula. The beads are strung in a mesh-like pattern.
The image below left is a veil from Alexandria. Although this is an old veil and we know the piece only from this image, we are assuming it is decorated with amber-like beads. Below the image (from an unknown photographer) is showing a woman from the Rashaida bedouin with a tightly woven beaded veil.
Where in by which people these beaded veils are used is unclear for now, but the topic is definitely worth more research in the future.
