Alison in a Chaddari

Known as a bourqa in Arabic, this full-body cover is most commonly known as a chaddari in Afghanistan. It's made of a synthetic material; the mesh opening is barely wide enough to expose both eyes; it drags along the ground; and it's tightly fitted around the crown of your head and face.. So, it's hot. You're likely to trip over it. And it's difficult to blink since your eyelashes get caught on the material. But it's an intriguing piece of apparel nevertheless, isn't it?
