Saudi shayla

Shayla is an Islamic head gear worn by some muslim women in the presence of any male outside of their immediate family. It is usually a black mask and considered a form of a hijab in the form of a half niqab with part of the face still appearing.[1]

It is traditionally worn by some women in Saudi Arabia and other Arab states of the Persian Gulf.[2]
