Pakol is also known as a Chitrali cap and has a round, soft, and flat crown. It is a popular woolen cap worn by men in many Islamic countries such as Pakistan and Afghanistan and is believed to have originated in Chitral, Pakistan. Chitral is also a center of its mass production.
Pakol is a rounded flat-topped soft woolen cap with the headband in the shape of thick rounded ropes similar to the agal in a keffiyeh. The rope-like headbands are so thick that they are clearly visible, and the rest of the hat’s body on the top of the headband is floppy and a lot similar to a flat top beret.
Most times, Pakols are available in earthy colors such as black, brown, grey, ivory, and red.
