I recently came across some examples of Chinese traditional clothing on the web which I thought might be worth sharing.

I am not sure who the photographer is but, the images are great. If you are interested in learning more about this style of clothing, have a look at the links I found:

Contrasts between Manchu and Han Chinese Apparel (from the university of Delaware)

“To the Han Chinese, woven cloth was valued and symbolized wealth. Weaving was a time consuming process, and silk weaving was very important to the Han Chinese economy. Silk was both a source of revenue and a reward for government service. Han garment construction methods reflected these economic concerns by minimizing the amount of cutting needed as well as fabric wastage. Han Chinese used excess fabric to indicate wealth and prestige. This would be symbolized by garments that used abundant quantities of cloth either through length and width, or through excessively long and full sleeves. The Han conveyed status by wearing larger and larger garments one over another which gradually immobilized the wearer. “

Han Chinese clothing or Hanfu also known as Hanzhuang, Huafu or guzhuang meaning “ancient clothing”
