Kova Tembel is a popular Israeli hat worn by the Jews. It has a stark resemblance to a bucket hat because the brim is soft and drooping in a similar fashion; however, the fit is slightly baggier for the Tembel hat. Also, the brim is longer and almost covers the eyes. Further, the crown is slightly pointier.

There are two theories around its name. Some say that the hat’s original name was Templer’s Hat, but as the Arabic population could not pronounce it, it transitioned to Temple hat. Some even say that it got its name from the Ottoman word ‘Tembel,’ which meant lazy. The way the hat is worn gives and appearance of a lazy person because it covers the eyes a little too much for an alert person’s liking.
