Due to the different geography, climate and natural conditions in the vast Tibet Autonomous Region, each region has its unique folk costumes to cope with the natural environment and different climate.
The Tibetan robe is the commonest. In the cities or towns, this is made from the high-grade woolens, while in farming and pasturing areas, Pulu and fur are used, respectively. It is necessary to have belt to tie up the Tibetan dress. The aprons that the Tibetan women wear are very unique, with florid color and characteristic patterns. In addition, Tibetan people like to wear hats, including felt hat, leather hat and golden flowered hat. Footwear is normally what is called Tibetan boots. The Tibetans wear many ornamental articles, respectively adorning their hair, ears, chest, waist and hand.
Now, there are also Western-style clothes and jackets in the wardrobes of Tibetan families, showing Tibetan new aesthetic value and marking the beginning of Tibetan society moving toward modernity. But some Tibetans wear traditional clothes when celebrating festivals.
