Along the lower edge of the "flap" is beaded fringe band composed of circular silver beads and dark blue tubular beads forming a "zig-zag" line along the edge. The under layer of the veil is roughly cut along the lower and right edges. No fastener, to be pinned closed. No labels or tags in garment. The gold trim on the tarha (head scarf) and the bead work on the niqab (veil) would not be seen on the streets in a city - strictly a Bedouin style.
