Lahu Clothes

Men of the Lahu ethnic minority wear black headbands with black collarless short jackets buttoned on the right side or in the middle, and sloppy long trousers.

Women's clothes vary from clan to clan. Women of the Lagusi clan wear black kerchiefs made of homespun cloth, collarless short gowns buttoned down the front, whose chest and cuffs are decorated with colorful cloth stripes and geometrical patterns, and pailform skirts.

Women of the Laguna clan sill wear costume with some characteristics of that in the north before they moved to the south, and they like to wrap the head with a kerchief of more than 3 meters long, which can be tied to the waist. Their long robes have high slits, and the right part of the front, sleeves, collar and the pleats are all inlaid with colorful geometrical-pattern cloth. Along the color and the connected part of the two pieces of the front are many shiny silver bubbles. They wear long pail-form skirts with colorful lattices under the robes.

The Lahu people go barefoot in most cases and some wear leggings. In areas with many contacts with the Hans and Dais, women and men of the Lahu ethnic group also like to wear Han- and Dai-style clothes.
