Chapan or chopon (Persian: چپان; Kyrgyz: Чапан; Kazakh: Шапан, romanized: Şapan; Uzbek: Чопон, romanized: Chopon) is a coat worn over clothes, usually during the cold winter months. Usually worn by men, these coats are adorned with intricate threading and come in a variety of colors and patterns. 

Ikat is a common weaving technique in Uzbek culture. The Uzbek Ikat, locally referred to as abrbandi, is distinguished by its bold and flamboyant patterns. The history of the Uzbek Ikat dates back to the 19th century, when it was mastered by the Uzbeks. Since then, it has become an integral part of their cultural identity and an important aspect of traditional clothing.
