Like every state, Punjab is also famous for its uniqueness in the
products such as Punjabi suits, lehenga choli, kurta pajamas, and even
turbans. Here, I will be talking about the turbans which is popularly
known as dastaar in my area.
Turbans are the most prevalent item in my region and the topmost
manufacturers of this particular product are Ahluwalia Turban Center
which is located in the city Ludhiana (a major textile hub of Punjab).
Turbans have its religious importance. Primitively, It used to be worn by
the Sikh mentors, who made it compulsory to be worn by everyone who
belongs to Sikhism. Actually, it is an article of faith that represents
honour, self-respect, courage, and spirituality. The Khalsa Sikh men and
women who keep the Five Ks, wear the turban to cover their long, uncut
hair (kesh). The Sikhs regard the dastaar as an important part of the
unique Sikh identity. It is not only worn by males, but some females also
put it on their heads, especially those who are the stringent disciples of
Sikh religion.

Overall, this is that particular item which is not only an important one in
our region but also has an extremely rich background.
