    Currently I cover my head with a rectangular black patka/rumal which was cut from some scrap cloth from the end of my dastar. Unless I am practising tying my dastar of course. I kind of go for the, uh, 'Monty Panesar' look, with my joora visible as a bump above my forehead. Trouble is, the rough cloth I use has ragged edges and is possibly the wrong shape.

    Is there anywhere I can buy a set of these type of patkas, with properly stitched sides and everything?


    Other things I am looking for:
    -cloth to wrap around my hair to help make the joora, because my hair isn't long enough yet. I could probably use the rumal I have now for that though if I got hold of a new patka.

    -Fifty

    -Thatha and some of that beard-flattening stuff in case I get a job interview and need to look smart.

    -A nice wrap for my gutka, which is one of those big ones which contains all the banis. I use a torn-off bit of cloth to keep the dust away atm, but it doesn't fit properly and I don't think it's very respectful anyway to always keep it in that old thing.

    Thankyou for the quick response.

    But are those the ones with strings? I don't like the strings, or at least the four string ones. My hair isn't long enough to make a proper sized joora for the four-string ones anyway.

    Mine isnt either... what I do is take about 1 M or so of regular turban material and wind it around my small joora like how you start a dumalla. it makes the joora thicker. Then I can put the patka over that and then I wrap the turban material over that. Eventually hope that I wont need to use the patka at all underneath without hair falling out. I dont wear dastar all the time right now, as I am just learning but thats how I have been doing it.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
