About the Photographer
Anne Feenstra is a Dutch architect living and working in Kabul, Afghanistan. He is the owner of AFIR Architects and also works as a design artist who features the use of thepakul in Afganistan
The pakul is a soft, round-topped men’s hat, typically of wool and found in a variety of earthycolours. 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. In Afghanistan thepakul is particularly popular in the mountainous areas of Badakshan, Nuristan, Panjsher and Konar.
