Clothes Around the World
By Aditya Yarlagadda, Purple House
The Sari (South Asia)
A garment consisting of a length of cotton or silk elaborately draped around the body, traditionally worn by women from South Asia, and we see them a lot in India.
A garment resembling a knee-length skirt of pleated tartan cloth, traditionally worn by men as part of Scottish Highland dress and now also worn by women and girls.
Maasai Beadwork (Kenya)
Brilliant red cloth, extraordinarily intricate beadwork and for young men long, ochre-dyed hair. The beadwork in particular contains much meaning, a bride’s collar being the pinnacle of Maasai craftsmanship.
Hijab (Middle East, Islamic)
A veil that covers the head and chest, which is particularly worn by some Muslim women beyond in the presence of adult males outside of their immediate family and non-Muslims.
Flamenco Dresses (Spain)
The flamenco dance wear is a costume Spanish dress worn by female flamenco performers.
A Kimono is a long, loose robe with wide sleeves and tied with a sash, originally worn as a formal garment in Japan and now also used elsewhere as a robe.
