Even in early times, men’s clothing was made to keep men warm and dry but the garments also featured decorative elements including unique patterns, colours and accessories offering a variety of meaning. Today’s designers work to keep their culture alive, incorporating many traditional elements while at the same time, bringing their own vision and contemporary style to their creations.
