  Dhaka topi

 

Nepal

A shop in Katmandu selling Dhaka topi, i.e. a type of brimless hat (topi) which is part of the Nepalese national dress (fig.). It is named after the type of fabric it is made of, i.e. Dhaka, which in turn is named after the capital of Bangladesh, where the typical design of the print originated from. These caps are sometimes also referred to as Nepali topi.
