Traditional Mongolian clothing for children is one of the most beautiful and traditional of all of Mongolia’s traditional attire. It is also one of the sturdiest. Because it is so old, it is often passed down from father to son. A child growing up in a traditional Mongolia family will learn many of the traditions that were passed down by their parents. That is why these clothing items can be so priceless.
The most traditional Mongolia garment is definitely the Mongolia. This is a long tunic that hangs from the shoulders with strings of beads dangling from it. It is a traditional costume for both genders and it is rarely worn by either sexes. Because they are so popular, children in particular absolutely love wearing them. They look absolutely wonderful on small children and look even more adorable on grown ups.
Another traditional piece of clothing for Mongolia children is the bolan. It is a two piece outfit that covers the child’s torso and a smaller one around their arms. It is traditionally worn by both sexes, but is especially popular among the sexes when the child is growing. The bolan is tied around their waists and sash cords are used to tie it around the waist. These pieces of clothing are very thin and delicate, making them perfect for kids to wear.
A more substantial clothing piece for Mongolia children would be the turtleneck. A turtleneck is a long sleeve shirt that is made out of thick wool fabric. It can either be machine-made or hand-sewn. Machine-made turtlenecks are very expensive because of the amount of time that it takes to create them, but if you don’t have the time, it is a perfectly viable option for handmade clothing. Handmade turtlenecks are very popular because they are completely unique – no two turtlenecks worn are ever exactly the same.
Children also traditionally wear heavy-duty socks. The socks that are worn are quite thick because they have to keep moisture in when the child is active. The material is usually cotton and knitted, with the occasional use of silk for decoration. These clothing items can last for several years when cared for properly.
Mongolia children do not have the privilege of wearing formal shoes. Their footwear must be lightweight, so that it doesn’t add weight. They will usually wear sandals in the summer. Their shoes must also be sturdy and must provide good ankle support. Traditional Mongolian footwear is designed to be flexible and ergonomic, so that it is comfortable to wear. While the overall look of these traditional shoes is hard to beat, they do make the children feel like they are back in the village where their parents dressed them.
The material used in the construction of Mongolian clothing for children is quite luxurious. The fabric is made of cotton grown in the country, which is often dyed a rich green. Even though cotton is typically a premium fabric, many companies have started to produce clothing that is made from cheaper cotton grown in the third world. This cheaper material is often mixed with the more expensive cotton to make the clothing.
Because traditional Mongolian clothing has such a unique design, it is not difficult to find children’s clothing that follows the basic designs. Some of the basics include long pants and shirts, long sleeves or camouflage shirts, and fleece jackets. Clothing such as this would not be very practical for an outdoor adventure, however. It is more suitable for wear during the cooler months, when the weather is still on the mild side.
