Possibly borrowed from Albanian kësulë (var. kaçule). Compare Aromanian cãciulã, cãciuã, Greek κασούλα (kasoúla). Alternatively cognate to it as Balkan substratum word, or akin to Latin casula or cuculla. Other attempts have been made to link it to a Vulgar Latin *catteula, from *cattea, from cattus, to *casibula, variant of casubula, but these are unlikely. Compare also Venetian caciòła.
