Redesign of the Takia - طاقية

I saw this advertisement in the last issue (No. 56 - Jan/Feb/March 2013) of "The HAT Magazine":

As an aside:
The takia - طاقية is the prayer cap (skullcap)
The koufiya -‏كوفية‎ is a square scarf, typically worn by Arab men.
The koufiya will be fixed on the head with an igal - عقال (agal), a black rope.

New Patriarch no Longer Wears the Shash

H.H. Pope Benedict XVI  meets Patriarch Louis Raphael I. Sako of the Chadean Catholic Church
He holds a red pileolus (zuchetto) in his left hand.
In Arabic: كلوتا - Kalotta
Sometimes also called: قَلَنْسَوَة - Qalansawa
But Kalansoah [Qalansuwah, Kalansowa, Kalansawa, Qalansawa] normally describes a hood:
The Kalansowa (قلنسوة), Headgear of the Coptic Orthodox Monks

The famous blog baghdadhope had the possibility to interview the new Patriarch Louis Raphael I. Sako of the Chadean Catholic Church.

Last sentence of the Interview:

"No. Mi sembra una tradizione antica e legata al folklore locale. Voglio essere semplice e diretto, non alzare barriere nei confronti di nessuno ed anche un certo modo di vestire in un certo senso è una barriera. Niente Shash, magari qualcosa di più semplice." 

 “To me it is a dated tradition that is linked to local folklore. I want to be simple and direct and avoid creating barriers with others. Even ways of dressing can form barriers to some extent. So no Shash but possibly something simpler.”
