Home >> Pherans

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.
