Ghum Rari - Hooded Blanket

Ghum Rari - Hooded Blanket


An all-enveloping, hooded blanket (ghum rari/ boku) is worn for protection against wind and rain. It is, in fact, a blanket folded into half and stitched up along one half at the selvedge. The hood so formed hangs down at the back over the seam, while the un-stitched sides hand down in the front, giving the appearance of a cloak - in cold weather the hood is worn over the head.
