A chador (pronounced "SHAH-dor") was a type of robe worn by some women of Zakhara. and Calimshan.[1][2]


These robes covered a woman's entire body and came with hoods and special face-coverings that allowed the wearer to see clearly while still shielding her eyes from view.[1][2] This garment was common in regions where moralists had power. Chadors were available in white for unmarried women, black for married women, and red for widows.[1]

Underneath a chador, a woman would wear trousers, a blouse, and a tunic, and sometimes a vest, or they would wear a caftan.[2]

Prices Edit

A typical chador sold for 8 sp.[3]
