The Swiss tourist parents chose Chador as the traditional costume for their 2.5 years old daughter because as they say they want their daughter to wear what most of Iranian women and girls traditionally wear.
Noushin Ansari is a French speaker tour leader. In May while she leads a tourist group in Masjed Jame mosque in Isfahan she meets this 2.5 years old girl who because of her outfit has attracted a lot of attention. A Swiss girl wearing black Chador
She had a short chat with the parents and then told ISNA about it, “They were a Swiss couple who had a ten days trip to Iran with their two young children. I asked them about choosing Chador and they said that they want their daughter to wear what most of Iranian women and girls traditionally wear, that’s why we bought a black Chador for our young daughter. Of course Chador was the only outfit they could find around Masjid Jame masque. The tourists I was leading were also attracted by the young girl outfit and they were constantly taking photos of her. The little girl was so excited that when her parents were trying to take the Chador off just before leaving the mosque she cried and didn’t allow them.”
