Qaraqul means Black fur in Turkic; similar types of hats are common among Turkic peoples. The hat is peaked, and folds flat when taken off of the wearer's head. Karakul caps have been used by Kashmiris for the past several decades.
The Pakol cap is the traditional hat of Afghanistan. The Stylish pakol has been loved worldwide and the style has been adapted in new fabrics and colors.

Before it is fitted, it resembles a bag with a round, flat bottom. The wearer rolls up the sides nearly to the top, forming a thick band, which then rests on the head like a beret or cap.
