See here a selection of different huts and headgears that you find in the paintings of Carpaccio and Gentile Bellini in the Accademia Gallery.

It’s another good reason not to miss the Accademia Gallery when you are in Venice.

The furry red bonnet called zamt was used by Mamluk soldiers. The white, more common turban, was used only in Mamluk Egypt and Syria.
