I have a question I have been trying to get answered for a long time, and have been unable to answer it to my satisfaction. I'm hoping I can get it answered here. Twi'lek women are generally shown wearing a leather head band in the movies and series, and only very rarely do you see their heads bare (in the comic books and such). What is the name of that leather garment? What is its cultural and social significance? I'm wondering if Twi'leks consider it indecent for females of their species to not wear one in public. I've even written to Leeland Chee, but got no response on this, and I'm guessing it's something like a bra for women, to help restrain the lekku to some degree, as well as denote some social standing with the greater elaborateness of it, or perhaps display family/clan symbols. I write fan fiction, and surprisingly, this came up, so I have taken to calling it a cha'andar, a name of my own creation, and treat it similar to a bra, where the character is embarrassed by the indecent behavior of another Twi'lek woman not wearing one in public. Please help!
