Does this include headscarves? I don't think it's cold enough in Indonesia that anyone would wear a neckscarf (which is what I normally associate with the word "scarf").
Headscarf has its own word (jilbab)
A scarf is often worn as a fashion accessory ... usually very light material.
I heard homeless people die from freezing in the winter though so i don't know about that. Plus my boyfriend in Bekasi is always complaining that it's recently gotten freezing lol
Like Schal in German
Originally from India, but came 'to the world' through Persian 'shal'
Oh cool, I never knew that!
Aren't pyjama's (and the word) from India as well?
Or like the Dutch "sjaal"!
