Tudung is a head scarf worn over the head by Muslim women in Malaysia. It is also called Hijab in Arabic term. 

Tudung comes in all kinds of fashionable designs, from solid colour, colourful flowers, embroidered, to something modern and trendy.  Sometimes hotels and banks supply tudung to their staff with their company logo on it too. 


There are many different ways to wear tudung and also the pins used to secure them come in variety of designs. 

While most Malay women in Melaka wear tudungs, I occasionally run across women without them. Some say it is part of women’s rights to choose whether or not to wear them.
