According to some sources, the pheran was introduced by Mughal emperor Akbar when he conquered the valley in 1586. In summer, the pheran are made of cotton, but in winter, the pheran is made of wool, covering and protecting the body from the cold especially during snow.

A thick long woolen garment worn by men and women - kept your whole body warm.
It would go down to below your knees in most cases.
The women version had embroidered neck and cuffs.
