This project tells the story of the emergence of various rites and customs of the Kazakh people.

Headdress is a venerable piece of clothes in the Kazakh culture.

According to the old tradition, one was never allowed to touch the ground, only hung on the wall, on the most revered spot in the room.

The headdresses of the Kazakh women differed with the woman’s age and social status.

The numerous names for all the different types include these almost forgotten types that are hard to find these days: bergek, zhyrga, saukele, shilter, burkenish, shylauysh.
