Shawls & Scarves

Shawls & Scarves

Shawls have been a part of the apparel scene for both men and women since Assyrian times. Simple structure and versatility have made it a favorite for women of all ages and all times. Scarves are, usually, lighter, less formal, and of course, less expensive variants of shawls. Women of afghanistanhave a rich and colorful history and tradition of shawl and scarf wearing. 

Afghan shawls are, more often than not, silk, and occasionally a combination of cotton and silk. In Afghanistan, in addition to being a practical wrap, shawls serve as a veil (to cover one's face).

Every region of Afghanistan has it's own shawl tradition. The Pashtun nomad women of southern and eastern Afghanistan around the cities of Khast, Gandez, and, Jalalabad wear colorful, but plain, shawls. Tribal women and nomad women of Shazni, Zabul, and Helman provinces prefer red, green, and magenta colors in their shawls of silk, with masterfully embellished silk embroidery. The Hazana women used to wear hand loomed, black or indigo colored cotton shawls. Nowadays they wear imported mass produced indian shawls.

At Nomad Style, we pride ourselves with collecting only the most masterfully crafted, authentic, vintage, traditional, tribal shawls from Afghanistan.
