Traditional Lao clothing has always been part of Lao culture and way of life.
The sinh is a long traditional skirt for women that is usually made of silk and that features a wide and often elaborately woven section at the foot.
In the old days, Lao women tended to wear more traditional clothing, which was made from silk and other cloths. Over the generations traditional clothing is worn abit less. It is common for Laotians to dress in more western clothes such as jeans and t-shirts. Lao teens these days follow western trends, as well as Japanese and Korean fashion trends.
Lao women in traditional sinh is still seen often on the streets of Laos because it is a compulsory uniform for female students.
Many employees, people living in rural areas and old women also wear the sinh on a daily basis, others only on special occasions
such as weddings and ceremonies.
