Dhaka Topi Divas

Posted by Dhruba shrestha Jan 2, 2017 :
A Dhaka topi (Nepali: ढाका टोपी ) is a type of hat, popular among Nepalese people and Nepali. The hat is made of a fabric called dhaka, which is also used for a type of blouse, a dhaka-ko-cholo which translates "blouse made of dhaka fabric". The word topi means "hat" in the Nepali. Men wear a long Kurta Suruwal or Daura Suruwal and Patuka instead of a belt. The hat is worn by Nepali communities. Dhaka Topis are also given away as gifts during Dashain, Tihar and Chhath festivals. Many nepalese men and women still wear costumes made from Dhaka on a regular basis, and the fabric itself unequivocally represents Nepali tradition and history. In the new year of English date people of Nepal celebrate Dhaka Topi Divas by wearing the Dhaka Topi to maintain the culture and to show the Nepalese culture to the world.
