Fez is a Turkish and Arabic cylindrically-shaped hat that has no peak but, at times, is decorated with a tassel. Generally, the hat is red-colored and is known as Fez because of the origin of the crimson berries from the Kingdom of Fez in Morocco. These berries were used to produce the dye that gave the hat its characteristic hue.

Fez gained its popularity during the Ottoman era and was initially the headgear used to wrap a turban around. As time progressed, the turban was eliminated, and Fez was worn in isolation.

Although Fez implied adherence to Islam, it was also predominantly worn by Christians and Jews during the Ottoman era.
