Nu Clothes

Influenced by neighboring ethnic groups, the Nu people do not have a uniform style of costume. In Gongshan area, their costume is similar to that of the Tibetans, with a long gown, a kerchief and a waistband. Nu women in this area used to wrap their body simply with two pieces of flax, put on adornments on the chest and penetrate their earlobes with two bamboo needles. 

In areas of Bijiang and Fugong, costume of the Nus is similar to that of the Lisus. Women often wear linen or cotton robes buttoned on the left, and long skirts. They like to put on necklaces lined with colored plastic beads on the chest. Some make beautiful head or chest ornaments with stringed corals, agates, shells and silver coins. They wear big copper earrings hanging down to the shoulder. All Nu women like to coil thin bines around their head, waist and ankles as decoration. Men put on linen robes and kerchiefs. Almost every man hangs a chopper on the left of the waist, and carries a bow and quiver on the right shoulder. 

Clothes of the Nu people used to be made of flax and now the materials extend to various kinds of cloth, silk and velvet.
