Living in a tropical country, we Filipinos often do not have the need for thick winter wear. Because of the warm and humid weather for most of the year, people only buy about 2-3 pieces of jackets or coats they could use, if it is that time of the year when the temperature goes down. They usually get a hooded jacket most commonly known as a hoodie, a sweatshirt, and some may even opt for a parka. The parka is a type of hooded coat; its style may depend on the brand that made it some brands manufacture parkas that have a fur or faux/fake fur lining in the hood. It is a long coat that would reach up to the mid-thigh level, typically between the hip and knee that has a thick lining. Although there wouldn’t be much use for the parka here in the Philippines, it would be great for those who travel often to our colder neighbors; like Korea, China, and Japan. Or for those who enjoy climbing mountains, wherein the high altitude can give way to colder climates.
The parka was originally created and worn by the Inuit, a group of indigenous people living in the Arctic regions of Alaska, Canada, and Greenland. The Inuit people initially fashioned this coat from seal skin that would provide them enough warmth because of the cold environment they’re living in. The modern parka is designed after the ones created in the 1950s during the war, created for those stationed in colder areas. These are created with a silk nylon fiber outer cover and a lining made of wool (this was changed to polyester in the 70s), a hood, a zipped closure in the middle, and a drawstring at the middle part.
