Our 100% silk golden yellow Tibetan Khata Ceremonial Scarf features the Eight Auspicious Symbols lightly woven in white into the fabric. These scarves are sometimes referred to as a khada, khadag or hada. They are traditional ceremonial scarves common in Tibetan culture. Khatas can be presented at any festive occasions to a host or at weddings, funerals, births, graduation, arrivals and departure of guests, etc.
The Tibetans commonly give a kind acknowledgment of Tashi Delek (meaning Good Luck) at the time of presenting. The Dalai Lama is known to offer khata as a gift to diplomats, visitors, or other monks, which symbolizes purity of intention and the beginning of the relationship. Made in Nepal.
