How To Wrap A Turban – 2 Minute Travel Video

[:en]We’ve seen the most beautiful coloured fabrics when we were in India in 2011. And they’re used for everything, from decorating the house and riksja’s to – of course – clothing and head gear. In this video you can see how two men (yes, you need a friend for this) wrap a turban.

Serious Wrapping

In Jodhpur we visited the Mehrangarh Fort and were lucky enough to see a demonstration of two men wrapping a turban from a long piece of colourful fabric. It seems so easy when you look at it, but I’m guessing it takes some technique to perfect your skill. And a long hallway in your house. In the fort, there is also a Turban Gallery where you can see different types of turbans. Every community and region has it’s own specific type of folding technique. Even for festivals there are different types of turban worn!

Turban Style

There is a great website where you can see all the different turban styles and they have tips and clear instruction videos of how to wrap your own turban as well. Check it out and happy wrapping.

What is your favourite type of head wear?
