Anonymous said: I see sometimes that Persian women wear a black robe and it was called a chador, but I thought a chador was just a veil?
black robe? do you mean the chador with sleeves? :p
the chador with sleeves is called a chador melli, or “national” chador. It’s more practical than a traditional chador bc traditional chadors are expected to be held in place by the hands (i know its commonly said that some ppl use their teeth to hold it, but I hardly see that done lol, I don’t know), but some have just used pins to keep them in place below their chin. Chadors are just big cuts of fabric, but the chador siah, “black chador”, is used as the common image of the Iranian chadori. But chador has never been exclusively black, and in a lot of places the chador comes in a variety of patterns and embroidery. You’ll see natural floral patterns and paisley patterns and whatnot.
in state-sanctioned fashion shows, you’ll see designers try different styles of chador, like the Qajari chador, to bring back into the chadori couture :p
oh yah i forgot that there’s hetalia canon
