Nepalese Hat

Frozen Memories

Traditional Nepalese Hat Traditional Nepalese Hat

The men of Nepal are commonly seen in their traditional headwear. It is not ubiquitous but it is fairly common particularly amongst the older generations. I wonder at the purpose behind these hats because they don’t shade the eyes from the sun and they don’t seem to cover enough of the head to provide warmth. I came to the unsupported conclusion that they are primarily worn for tradition. I just wish I knew the source of that tradition.

I sought out a vendor and an attempted to buy one to add to my collection of traditional items purchased in their native lands. I found a street vendor who was going to give me a great price because I was his first customer of the day. Unfortunately, none of his stock would properly fit my oversized head.
