A robe belonging to the current Afghan president, Hamid Karzai,
A robe belonging to the current Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, will be sold at a charity auction in Washington, D.C. on January 24, the Afghan news agency Pajhwok said on Monday.

The silken robe, or chapan as the garment is traditionally known in Central Asia, is a green and purple striped robe adorned with intricate threading.

The robe, which once won its owner the title of 'the chicest man in the world' according to the Gucci fashion house, will be auctioned by the Afghan embassy at the Meridian International Center.

The proceeds from the sale will go to Tomorrow's Women and Children of Afghanistan, an Afghan NGO that supports maternity hospitals and orphanages in the Kabul area.

Afghan jewelry, unique hand made carpets, dolls made by local craftsmen, and paintings by Afghan artists are also set to go under the hammer at the auction.
