Specially crafted Peshawari chappals to be gifted to Saudi crown prince
A historic welcome awaits Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman who will arrive in Pakistan on Sunday on a two-day visit.
He will be presented a gift of specially crafted Peshawari Chappal also known as Kaptaan Chappal.
More than six pairs of beautiful chappals have been crafted by Nooriddin, a big-name Peshawari Chappal maker.
This famous chappal is also favourite of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Handing over the chappal to Federal Minister for Information Chaudhry Fawad, Nooriddin said it was a traditional chappal of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and hopefully the Saudi crown prince would like it.
The chappals have been made in one week.
Peshawari chappal is a traditional footwear of Pakistan, worn by men especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa with the Shalwar Kameez dress. The footgear takes its name from the city of Peshawar, while ‘chappal’ is the local word for flip-flops.
