The Fez - The red fez with a black tassel, Shriners' official headgear, has been handed down through the ages. It derives its name from the place where it was first manufactured - the city of Fez, Morocco. Some historians claim it dates back to about A.D. 980, but the name of the fez, or tarboosh, does not appear in Arabic literature until around the 14th century. One of the earliest references to the headgear is in the story "Arabian Nights".
