Traditional Uzbek clothing continued to retain its archaic features until the 20th century. Men’s, women’s and even children’s things were uniform and were practically the same in form and cut.
The national men’s Uzbek costume consisted of an upper and lower gown, tied with a handkerchief or shawls, a wide shirt – kuilak, pants – ishton, boots made of fine leather and a headdress – skullcap.
National men’s Uzbek costume – Dressing gowns – chapanasHalats – chapan, sewed from the striped material, had vertical cuts on the sides, for ease of movement and sitting on the floor. Buttons and pockets were not foreseen, the hem of the dressing gown was connected by short bandages in the chest area or tied up with a handkerchief to smell. Chapan were summer from a thin fabric or winter, warm, quilted cotton wool.
Everyday men’s shirt is kuilak (deaf), spread throughout the country, or yachts (swing), which took place only in the Fergana Valley and the Tashkent region. Both of these shirts were sewn from homespun cotton fabrics, the only decoration on the product was the stitching of the gate with braid – jiak.
Men’s pants – ishton, too, did not sin excessively. They were wide, free cut and only narrowed to the bottom of the leg. Buttons, pants and pockets were not provided, pants were held on the body by means of a tied scarf.
Bilbog – a waist shawl, the usual attribute of men’s clothing and the only bright spot in the everyday set. He was folded at an angle, wrapped and tied around his waist. The kerchief served as a belt, pockets and even buttons, connecting the gowns of the robe. All traditional clothes are presented on uzikat.com.
Women’s Uzbek national clothes – traditions and customs of the Uzbek people Tubeteyka – Duppi – the final attribute of the male ensemble. This hat is more a tribute to the traditions of Islam than protection from bad weather. Almost all over Uzbekistan are popular chub skullcaps that have come from the Ferghana Valley. They are very simple and exquisite. On a dark background of a tetrahedral cap a white pattern is embroidered (bodom, kalampir) resembling a pod of pepper or almonds, and on the bottom edge, an ornament of 16 different arches is launched. It was believed that wearing Duppi protects against evil forces, evil eye and many more misfortunes. By the way, in some regions of Uzbekistan (Khorezm), as a headdress instead of skullcaps, prefers hats made of sheepskin.
