HOW TO BECOME A FRIEND OF THE WORLD SOCIETY?

What is the purpose of the kiyimeshek headwear?

Wearing the ak kiymeshek started after age 50.

The purpose of the kiymeshek was to hide the hair of married women, because it was believed among Karakalpaks that through the hair the woman could be hurt. In general, this type of clothing included good wishes to a young woman and to continue the family as well as the protection from evil forces. The kiymeshek was sewn and embroidered by the bride herself. The kiymeshek was supposed to be worn as long as possible after the wedding.

You will find more examples of national Uzbek clothes in the book-album "Traditional Uzbek costume on materials of museum and private collections of Uzbekistan (Part 2)" (volume XLIX) from the series "Cultural legacy of Uzbekistan in the world collections".

The general sponsor of the project is the oilfield services company Eriell-Group.
