The history of clothing is a part of Iranian culture and civilization that can be considered and analyzed in all historical periods. Covering the whole body has been quite common in all historical periods of ancient Iran. One of these covers is the head covering, or in other words, the cap. Cultural roots can be found based on archaeological data. According to this evidence, in ancient Iran, women in different historical periods as well as different social classes wore chadors or other forms of head covering such as hats or headscarves. And covering the head has been a common culture among both women and men. In the present study, the women's cap of the ancient Elam has been studied and analyzed in comparison with the women's cap of this region in the contemporary period. The purpose of this study is to investigate the origins and antiquity of this type of head covering based on archaeological data. This article tries to answer the question of what connection can be found between the common head covering on women in the western region of Iran and archaeological data from the Elamite period in this region. The results of the study indicate that the use of caps among women in this area has a history of five thousand years and the samples studied in this study are similar to some of the current types of caps. In the present paper, data collection has been done through library studies and the results have been presented through historical descriptive analysis.
