Pheran is a traditional Kashmiri
garment worn in winters to get some warmth from frigid
weather .It is eminently suited to the Kashmiri way of
life, because it provides space for "Kangri", an earthen
lamp carried close to the body for more warmth when Temperature
goes down from zero degree.
Men's Pherans are always made of tweed or coarse wool ,
while women's pherans, are more stylized, commonly made
of raffel with ari or hook embroidery at the throat,
cuffs and edges. The quality of embroidery and thickness
of the raffel determines the price.
