E.Dawaalham (left) and T. Khanaas (right) who is wearing a silk brocade traditional Buryat-style deel (Buriat, degel), and hat sewn for this special occasion by her maternal grand-mother. Dawaalham wears the traditional Khalkha Mongol deel and sash. To not draw the fabric of one’s deel in at the waist, with either a sash or a belt, is simply not the done thing. Delgeruun Choira, 5 September 2015. Photo: C.Pleteshner
