Unique features of Ha Nhi people's costumes

For the Ha Nhi ethnic group, preserving their traditional costumes is an act to preserve their unique culture.

Ha Nhi community is divided into three branches, including black Ha Nhi, Ha Nhi Co Cho and Ha Nhi La Mi. The two latter branches are also called Ha Nhi Hoa. If the costumes of the black Ha Nhi use black and dark-blue as the main colors, the costumes of the Ha Nhi Hoa, use more vibrant and sophisticated colors.

According to researchers, the traditional costumes of the Ha Nhi Hoa people are very sophisticated. A full outfit of the women includes: blouse, hat, belt, and brassiere. The blouse has two layers, the short outside and the long inside. The sleeves are given special attention. Looking at the sleeve, we can distinguish a married woman from a young girl. The blouse is embroidered very sophisticated with red, white mixed with yellow and blue stitches as the popular colors.

Meanwhile, the black Ha Nhi people have simple and elegant costumes, which have only a combination of black, blue and white indigo. However, decorative patterns are also sophisticated.

Men's costumes are simple and have deeper colors. A full outfit consists of shirt, pants, and head scarf. The colors are mainly black and indigo. There are two types of clothes for work and rituals. The outfit for work includes short shirt and pants while the ritual outfit consists of headscarves, long blouse and pants.
