Attires from around the world

January 11, 2019 11:03 am

Even today there are thousands of tribes across the world that live among themselves away from the rest of us. They fish, farm, make small governments to govern their populations and still live the indigenous life. Living the life that predates them by centuries, they have also retained their tribal clothing. Varying in geographies, climates and cultural standards, their attires reflect their essence as a community and the lifestyle they abide by even after hundreds of years. Modern clothing is now deriving inspiration from the colorful beads and the hand-woven fabrics these tribes have worn all these years. Because they are original and durable their usage in today’s clothing shouldn’t be a huge surprise.
