Gaoshan Clothes

Aboriginals of the Gaoshan ethnic minority in Taiwan wear clothes in various styles made of linen and cotton fabric. Men generally wear a shawl, a vest, a short coat, a pair of shorts, a kerchief and cloth leggings. In some areas, they use bine or willow bark to make waistcoats, with refined handwork.

Some women wear a frock with or without sleeves, and some wear a long gown reaching the knees. They wear a pailform skirt or trousers. Women in Taiya tribe (a branch of Gaoshan) wear a side jacket, wrapping from the right shoulder to the left armpit and knotting at the shoulder. Some women prefer to wear small or long aprons. Women in all tribes know how to dye colorful linen. They like to decorate the front of the outer garment, sleeves, kerchiefs and scarves with beautiful embroidery and wear various kinds of adornments made of animal bones.
