Kyrgyz male hat called “kalpak”. Usually, this hat is made of white felt and adorned with embroidery designs. It is a high-crowned narrow-brimmed hat. There are kalpaks for various seasons – thicker felt or sheepskin is used for winter and thin felt is good for summer. This headdress is very convenient because it can be folded flat, so you can easily carry it in your bag or pocket.
