Long neck Karen, why wear a loop

  • Karen’s worries are believed to come from fears of ghosts and spirits fearing ghosts will be displeased. Let the tiger bite and stab the throat Therefore put a loop to protect the tiger Some say that it is a symbol of the tribe.
  • Wearing the loop will begin to wear for girls aged 5-9 years, performed by a village shaman. The loop used is a brass loop. And will increase the number of rings up to 32 rings weighing about 13-15 kilograms, but nowadays the tradition of wearing Karen rings has decreased Due to inconvenience in work Which must travel to work in the city
