The Headdress of a Kalashi Woman

The Kalash tribe in the mountains of Northern Pakistan has preserved its ancient culture and customs. Their unique way of life includes dressing that is not found anywhere else in the world. The main component of a Kalashi woman’s garb is a headdress made out of elaborate patterns and seashells.
