Arab men wear a loose, one piece robe called a Didashah. They also wear a three-piece head cover. The bottom piece is a white cap often filled with holes used to hold hair in place called a Thagiyah. On top is a scarf like head cover. In the summer it is white and called a Gutrah. In the winter, it is checkered, usually red and white called a Shumaq. This piece is used to protect the head from the sun, and to cover the mouth and nose in a sand storm. On top of the Thagiyah and Shamaq/Gutrah is the Ogal. The Ogal is a black band just there to hold everything else in place.
The economy of Syria is based on agriculture, oil, industry, and services.
