Chirpi is the name of a Tekke Turkoman woman’s cloak, often with silk embroidery. The Chirpy has false sleeves sewed to the shoulder. These cloaks were used mostly for ceremonies such as weddings. They were made in several colors according to age of the wearer. The Yashl Chirpi (Green Chirpi) were used by the younger women, the Sary Chirpi (Yellow Chirpi) was used by middle aged and the Ak Chirpi (White Chirpi) for old women.
