Description

TMC have come out with their own woolen pakol and it comes in a SMOKE,CAMEL or COCOA colour.

A pakol (Khowar/Pashto/Persian), also called pakul, khapol, kapor, Chitrali topi and the Afghan cap, is a soft, round-topped men's hat, typically of wool and found in any of a variety of earthy colors: brown, black, gray, or ivory, or dyed red using walnut. Before it is fitted, it resembles a bag with a round, flat bottom. The wearer rolls up the sides nearly to the top, forming a thick band, which then rests on the head like a beret or cap. After foding it, it should fit all head sizes!

The pakol is part of the culture of the Hindu Kush, and got its popularity during Afghan war when mujahideen members started using it, as it was an excellent alternative to the Pashtun turban. Today it has become an integral part of Afghan culture all over the world.
