Patka is a Sikh head covering which is worn by many Sikh children in preference to its bigger brother the turban. The Patka is also worn by many adult Sikhs as a under-turban as well, just as we use other underwear of different colours. This under-turban may be kept at bed-time as well, when the turban proper is taken off. similarly, during swimming and sports, the turban is replaced by a small scarf-sized cloth called the 'PATKA'. This is knotted at the top to keep the hair intact.


In fact PATKA is more popular with young Sikhs at school. The patka is a simple cloth head covering, consisting of about two square feet of fabric with strings to secure it. The patka is usually worn by Sikh youths, or in the place of a turban by less traditional adult Sikhs.



this is intended for other white males NOT in a sikh family.. I found this vid VERY helpful:

Sharab ji,

Cool. Now that I know how, I might volunteer tying it for some kids at the Gurdwara. Thanks.

begum-ji,

I will also do a vid of me tying my hair up in a patka... I do not have full kesh yet so maybe that can help out of their white males with medium-length hair.

Sherab - Really good video. Even I could do this for someone else after watching it. Do you know what kind of cotton cloth is used? It seems very soft and pliable, but not flimsy. That has to be important.

Hi Aad-ji,

The best thing to do is order patkas from a sikh store. I buy mine at SikhLink LCC in Maryland, their website is:

Sikh Gifts

The only downside to that site is that all patkas are in one size. I should also note that in the video i linked to in my first post, the patka used is WITHOUT STRINGS - therefore, if you want a similar one you will have to buy a patka for adults.

Another site you can use, IF YOU HAVE PAYPAL, is:

Sikh Gifts

They offer 3 sizes and VERY many colors to choose from. However, you should also note that the patkas from the above store (GoSikh) have strings on them, unlike the one in the video in the first post.

If you do not have PayPal, and still want to use the above site, i have sent GoSikh a business correspondence by e-mail requesting if they have alternative ways of payment other then PayPal.

Glad i can help,
Surinderjit

Re: How to tie a patka

Sherab,

Good information. I don't need to tie a patka on anyone right now. But who knows? At least I have a rough idea.
