Yashmak
A yashmak, yashmac or yasmak (from Turkish yaşmak, "a veil") is a Turkish type of veil or niqab worn by some Muslim women to cover their faces in public. Today there is almost no usage of this Islamic garment in Turkey.
Unlike an ordinary veil, a yashmak contains a head-veil and a face-veil in one, thus consisting of two pieces of fine muslin, one tied across the face under the nose, and the other tied across the forehead draping the head.
A yashmak can also contain a piece of black horsehair attached close to the temples and sloping down like an awning to cover the face, or it can be a veil covered with pieces of lace, having slits for the eyes, tied behind the head by strings and sometimes supported over the nose by a small piece of gold.

NonModern: Yashmak
(Poetry Scales 26) In the spectrum between burqas and bikinis, where is that happy medium? Either end makes of women an object; on either end you can’t really see them. When it comes to conversation, parlance, or interaction; desire or disturbance… each amounts to distraction. The coverage most flattering, of cloth on a model is neither inches nor yards, but the good taste in the middle.
