The fez may have originated in ancient Greece, or the Balkans, initially during the
Byzantine reign, and subsequently, during the Ottoman period,
various Slavs, mostly
Bosniaks and Serbs, started wearing the head-wear.
The fez is a part of the traditional clothing of Cyprus, and is still worn by some Cypriots
today. Traditionally, women wore a red fez over their heads,
instead of a headscarf, while
men wore a black or red cap. The fez was sometimes worn by men with material (similar to
a wrapped keffiyeh or turban) around the base. In his 1811 journey to Cyprus, John Pinkerton
describes the fez, "a red cap turned up with fur", as "the proper
Greek dress". In the
Karpass Peninsula, white caps are worn, a style considered to be based on ancient Cypriot
Hellenic-Phoenician attire, thus preserving men's head-wear from 2,700 years earlier.
