Something to Love in Kyrgyzstan a Day: Kalpaks

These are the traditional Kyrgyz men's hat.  We have many, many of them (more than pictured here) and I can't even remember where they all came from.  But my favorite is probably the one with black embroidery.  A friend of ours gave it to us last time and his mother made it.  You'll see plenty of machine-made ones for sale.
