The clothes we wear talk about us, about how we are in the world, about our desire to send messages to the people that surround us.
Our clothes talk about our culture, and in some cases even about our religion. The muslam religion says that they have to wear a veil: they can only leave their eyes visible. Japanese culture says that everyone has to wear a kimono, first as a substitution of every other type of clothing, then just as normal clothes called nagagi, or long clothing. Kimonos can be of different colours, styles and sizes. Men usually wear the darker ones, while women wear the lighter and more coloured ones. Kimonos for the summer are much lighter and usually go down to the knees. In Cina, men wear ghos, which are long robes tied with a belt, kera. Women wear long robes that go down to their ankles, called kira, adorned with lots of traditional decorations. In India women wear saris, robes that are about a metre long and widths that can be from 4 to 9 metres.
In every country, clothes rappresent culture and identity, and it’s good that everyone maintains and respects it.
