‘Çevre’ (square kerchief; a decorative accessory).  Embroidered with silk and metal thread on linen.  This is ‘two-sided embroidery’ (front and rear are identical).   Technique: ‘pesend’ (double running stitch).  In Thrace, such kerchiefs are used in traditional men costumes, as scarves around the neck. Note: the ‘çevre’ is folded with its corners to the inside; unfolding it will double its height and width.
