These waistcoats are perfectly designed to cope with Afghanistan’s brutally cold winters, and fierce summers, and are traditionally worn by Afghan men throughout the year. We’ve updated the traditional waistcoat by pairing soft wool with a contemporary lining, perfect for wearing casually during the day, or for smarter evening wear. They are cut to fit all sizes, large and small.
These waistcoats are a collaboration between ISHKAR and a Kabul based textiles company that specialises in high-quality tailoring using the finest fabrics from Afghanistan and Central Asia. In their atelier they employ a group of female and male artisans who work as tailors, seamstresses, embroiderers, and weavers.
