Since I was able to add some more beautiful pieces to my collection children clothing I would love to share this beautiful ‘kuppa’ and ‘gopaz’ which is worn by the girls from the Kalash people in the hidden valley of Chitral/Pakistan. A interesting culture. Mr. Buggi from who I bought the hats is working to preserve this interesting culture. The ‘kupa’ is worn every day and the ‘gopaz’ Is worn only during festival time. The hair on the back side of the head is shaved and the hair at the front will never be cut. The long hair helps them wearing the ‘gopaz’. The picture of the little girl if made by mr Mohammed Bugi. And show a little girl wearing the headdress at festival time.

Hi Monique- What treasures! And the little girl is absolutely gorgeous! Interestingly, the shape of the 'gopaz' reminds me of the flat headdresses from Ladakh that are worn by the women, but opposite in shape, with the wide part in front and the taper going down the back. If I can find a photo, I'll post it.
