Royal Rajasthani Turbans

indiagateThe desert state of Rajasthan is popular for its unique culture and lifestyle. This distinctive nature of Rajasthan attracts many tourists from all over the world. The Rajasthani people are identified by the style and color of their Rajasthani turbans, which vary from region to region, and caste to caste. The Rajputs favor the turbans in the Safa style. In Marwar, high turbans are used and the same style is found in Sirohi and Jaisalmer. Bikaner has a special type of turbans known as the 'Khirkia pag'. In the Udaipur region, the style is called Mewari. Turbans come in all shapes, sizes and colours and there are specific turbans for specific occasions as well.

There are many variations of the turbans in Rajasthan, and it is said that the style of the turban changes with every 15 km you travel. In some areas, especially in Rajasthan the turban's size may indicate the position of the person in society. 'Royalty' in different parts of India have distinctly different styles of turbans, as do the 'peasants', who often just wear a towel wound around the head. In fact there are about 1,000 different styles and types of turbans in Rajasthan, each denoting the class, caste and region of the wearer. Turbans come in all shapes, sizes and colours; and there are specific turbans for specific occasions as well.

Turbans, the headdress of Indian men are known for their beauty and elegance, they are an essential part of Indian traditional outfit. The turbans add color to the man's costume. Some of the turbans are also called by the cloth by which it is tied, like PACHRANGI turban is made of a five different colored chunri cloth and then jari turbans are there made by the cloth of jari and silk, it is generally worn on formal occasions of marriage along with Sherwani or Jodhpuri Suits with heavy beautiful embroidery patterns on them. Pink, Red and green patterns worn for marriage events. Tying the turban is an art in itself and Rajasthani take great pride in perfecting the art. Pagribands are the specialists who master the art of turban-tying in Jodhpur; the multi-colored PANCHRAMYA Pagri comes in color combinations of saffron, white, pink, red and yellow saffron. Brightly colored striped turbans are known as leheria turbans ('leheria' in Hindi literally means waves).

Turban is a very flexible and adaptive kind of clothing accessory, which can be well adjusted and worn according to the situation. While at home turbans are tied in an easygoing manner, which is hassle free to carry and quick to tie. Rajasthani turbans not only protect men from the heat of searing sun but also are indicative of one's class and caste. In Hindi, an Indian language, a turban is called a pagdi. A ‘pagari’ is usually 82 feet long and 8 inches wide. A ‘safa’ is shorter and broader. The common man wears turban of one color, while the elite wear designs and colors according to the occasion.

Turbans hold religious significance. Infact in Hindu weddings wearing head turbans for men is a kind of custom where the girl's as well as boy's father are found bedecking their heads with a turban more commonly known as 'Pagari'. It has become an integral part of wedding ceremonies. It's interesting to see Indian men draping their turbans. You'll be amazed to know that color in itself signifies occasion for example dot prints and bright shades in turban are usually attired at the time of birth and marriage. Dull dark colors like dark blue are worn to pray for the departed soul of a family member.
