Russian caps

by Nozomi U.
(Tokyo, Japan)

Although the annual range of temperature is basically wide in Russia, it’s so cold because of tundra or taiga in my image. Russian fur caps ('ywahka' in Russian) are worn as a part of fashion among the Japanese (especially women) in recent years. I don’t know how it was introduced, but it seems to have come in by a model and actress wearing it.

The Russian fur cap was originally worn for protection against cold at the cold latitudes. The quality of snow is smooth, so people can dust easily and don’t use an umbrella. And then they need a cap (or hat), so that was a fur cap. That’s the wisdom of people surviving the cold.

They put on a fur cap whenever the wind blows and snows. This is the custom in Russia. When they go out, it’s surely a more serious matter if they forget their fur cap than a cellphone in Russia.

That's an interesting story, Nozomi.

Yes, let's stay warm & not forget our Russian fur caps. Do you have one? :-)

By the way, the pic above in the middle looks like Angelina Jolie. If so, where's Brad Pitt in HIS Russian fur cap? :-)
