Tujia Ethnic Attires


 
Tujia attires have experienced a renovation from extravagance to relatively simplicity. It embraces practical utility, simplicity, casual style and elaborate details. Tujia people of all ages and genders wear collarless tops open on the left side, with wide sleeves and embroidered trimmings. Still, there is difference. Tujia men wear black or white headgears, double-breasted tops, blue, black or white loose pants and fabric shoes with white thick soles.

Tujia women wear black headgears measuring 1.7m to 2.3m-long. The sleeves and pant hemming are fringed with cross-stitch embroidery patterned after flowers, birds, fish and auspicious animals. The intertwining green, red, yellow threads are employed to bring out lively effect. Unlike Bai people who adore white, Tujia people admire red color, which symbolizes good luck and happiness. During the wedding, the bride must wear gorgeous red canonical.
