Tu Clothes

Young men of the Tu ethnic minority wear a terai laced with brocade, a small-collared long robe with tilted front, a black or purple waistcoat over the robe, a long embroidered band around the waist, trousers with a big crotch, and leggings with black upper part and white lower part. Old men wear a hat decorated with a piece of blue cloth in the shape of a horn, which can be rolled up or put down, a long robe, a black waistcoat over the robe, white trousers and black shoes.

Women's clothes are more colorful than men's. Their usual costume is a short jacket with buttons down the side. The jackets have sleeves made up of cloth in the five colors of the rainbow: red, yellow, green, violet and black. In addition, they tie a long, wide colorful band around the waist, sometimes add a black, purple or laced blue waistcoat, and wear a bright red plaited skirt with a white lace. They wear sections of trouser legs below the knees, and embroidered shoes. Old women do not wear jackets with sleeves in five colors, nor colorful embroidered waistbands. For unmarried women, the trouser legs below the knees must be red, as the color is an indication of marital status.
