The headpiece turban, tunic and sash (Ex 28:36-28:39)

“You shall make a rosette of pure gold, and engrave on it, like the engraving of a signet, ‘Holy to Yahweh.’  You shall fasten it on the turban with a blue cord.  It shall be on the front of the turban.  It shall be on Aaron’s forehead.  Aaron shall take on himself any guilt incurred in the holy offering that the Israelites consecrate as their sacred donations.  It shall always be on his forehead, in order that they may find favor before Yahweh.  You shall make the checkered tunic of fine linen.  You shall make a turban of fine linen.  You shall make a sash embroidered with needlework.”

Linen is used here for the tunic, turban and sash.  However, the turban has an elaborate crown on it, a rosette of pure gold.  A rosette is like a small flower design.  The engraving on it says ‘Holy to Yahweh.’ This little golden crown flower is fastened to the turban with a blue cord.  Thus, it is on the front of the turban on Aaron’s forehead.   Not much is said about the checkered tunic and the sash.
