Buchari kippah - Bucharian Yarmulkes
The Jewish community of Bukhara, in Uzbekistan, Central Asia, traces its origins to the times of the Babylonian captivity. Throughout the centuries, the Jews maintained their identity and distinctive culture. In recent years, most emigrated to the USA and Israel, bringing with them their colorful exotic style of dress and home decoration, today highly popular and trendy.
Look through the aJudaica selection of Bukhara Kippot. You will see they all feature the traditional pillbox shape giving height and prominence. The generous width of the kippah means that it will sit easily on the head to be comfortably worn for a period of time. We offer a choice of traditional floral or geometric designs, all of them embellished with lively rich colors.
Whatever the occasion or time of the year, a Buchara Kippah is dignified and impressive; an all-time favorite. Children love wearing them, especially on Purim.
