Rakhine Costumes


Rakhine men wear delicately woven Rakhine longyis, shirts without collar and traditional jackets. They also wear ready-made turbans with the wing-cloth hanging on the left. Rakhine women make their hair in a variety of styles. They wear blouses with front-opening that are buttoned either in the centre or on the side. Their longyis are woven in beautiful designs usually consisting of horizontal stripes. A shawl is wrapped across the body passing over the left shoulder.
