Title- 5 Himachali winter apparels you can pull off this winter.
So, winter is almost here and while some of us are just prepared to run on endless cups of tea and
fantasising about tugging ourselves in our blankets, there’s a whole other kind of people who are
looking forward to pull off their winter wardrobe. You can’t deny that you all have that one friend who
has a cupboard full of winter apparel whether it’s overcoats, pashminas, leather jackets and what not while you spend all your winter in one sweatshirt.
Maybe this time you can surprise your “always ready for winters” friend with your authentic traditional himachali outfits. I call them authentic because they are woven in Himachal and traditional because of course they are different from our regular sweaters and jackets. Here are some pure Himachali winter apparels that you can include in your wardrobe.
The Shawls in Himachal are woven in Kullu and Kinnaur and to maintain their authenticity, these
shawls are named after the districts (Kullu and Kinnauri shawls) government.
Dhoru is a kind of shawl that has geometrical patters on it which have religious meanings and
the colour of the threads show the elements of nature.
