  Phu Thai

 

Thailand

The traditional dress of the Phu Thai people is dark indigo, almost black in colour. The women wear a  short jacket, with colourful embroidery on the outer edges, and a long tubular skirt with a bluish to white pattern, as well as a silver belt, necklace and single wristlet. On the head they have a small colourful scarf, with fringes at the front.

 

The men also wear a short jacket, but with silver embroidery on the outer edges and pockets, and long indigo-blackish trousers, and whereas men wear a kind of pahkaomah around the waist, women typically wear a similar piece of cloth over the shoulder.
