Traditional asian fashion

Even though many cultures and traditions are prevalent in Asian countries, the influence of westernization can also be seen in some areas. However, at Dunkelwolf, we work to bring you the raw and unfiltered clothing that is popular in traditional Asian fashion. Whether you’re looking for clothing for your next trip or just want to get into the flow of traditional Asian fashion, we’ve got your back. Now, since traditional Asian fashion is a pretty broad term, we’ve divided our fashion lines by geographic location.

You can search for any type of clothing – whether traditional Chinese or even Indian. Our website is designed to give our customers easy access to the wealth of diverse and inclusive items we offer. Most people from the Western world only think of traditional Asian fashion as a Japanese man in a kimono or a Chinese man dressed in simple, boring clothes after the Mao regime. Well, let’s break this stereotype by showing you how vibrant traditional Asian clothing is.

Clothing according to the geographical location

We strive to be inclusive in our store, so our selection of Asian clothing is perhaps the most authentic and extensive you will find anywhere. These clothes are reminiscent of the traditions of the regions they come from and carry the richness and diversity of cultures. At Dunkelwolf, we strive to bring to light the opulent culture of these regions, as the knowledge of the West when it comes to traditional Asian fashion is rather limited.

This can be due to several reasons. The differences in language, culture, customs and beliefs may be one cause. However, with our initiative, we are working to bring people from the West and East together through fashion. When it comes to traditional Asian fashion, one cannot deny the fashion culture prevalent in China and Japan. Let’s just dive into the range of clothing for different Asian backgrounds that we offer.

– Japan
The culture of Japan is under Western influence, and we can see that their media is heavily influenced by the actions of the West. However, traditional clothing has remained of great importance to them. According to their culture, the traditional clothing is a kimono robe. Wide leg pants popularly known as hakama, silk jackets known as haori coats, and michiyuki for sandals are a fashion staple for men and women alike. That’s why at Dunkelwolf, we strive for cultural appreciation and offer you all these reasonable fashionable items at the best price. We also offer these items in a wide range of colors, so whether you want bright or dull clothing, we’ve got your back.

– China

Traditional outfits in China are a little different from what you see in modern times. These outfits can sometimes be gender specific, but some of them are more on the cross-gender side. The garment that women wear in traditional fashion is a cheongsam. This is a type of body-hugging dress that is high-necked and has a half slit on the side. This dress is usually decorated with flowers and bright colors and is said to be worn by the upper middle class to represent a high social class. At Dunkelwolf, we offer a range of sizes for you to choose from, as well as a plethora of different designs, so you have your pick here.

In terms of more cross-gender outfits, we carry the Hanfu. This fashion piece can be worn by both men and women due to the unique fabrication of the piece. The flowing quality of the dress makes it look stunning on anyone, and the ethereal quality of this dress also lifts the confidence of the wearer. The hanfu has many features that are similar to its Japanese counterpart – the kimono. However, both have some differences and represent different concepts behind its making. We carry many ethereal looking hanfu and cheongsams of the highest quality. You can also pair these pieces with some traditional Asian slip-on shoes.

– India
The culture of India is very vibrant and colorful, so you can expect a lot of color in their fashion. Just like the bright and vibrant cultures of the Chinese and Japanese, Indian fashion is also influenced by their culture and tradition. The garments for our Indian range are a sari for women and a kurta pajama for the men. The traditional saris have colorful patterns and are beautifully decorated from top to bottom. We have paid attention to this and you will see the attention to detail in our clothing line made for India. The kurta pajama you will find for the men will be up to the knee or possibly longer. As for footwear, we carry traditional sandals and loafers to further enhance the whole look.

– Korea

Korea has been the talk of the town lately with K-pop and the flourishing music industry. But the country’s traditional fashion has not been forgotten despite all these changes. Allow us at Dunkelwolf to introduce you to the authentic traditional dresses of Korea. The traditional fashion statement of the region is wide blouses, called chigori, with wide bottoms as well. For the women, a wide ch’ima skirt is also offered. For men, wide-legged pants known as paij are all the rage.

Korea’s traditional holiday robes also have some similarities to kimonos; however, they are only worn on some special occasions and festivals. So if you are looking for a robe for a special occasion, you need to get a Darumagi robe! If you are thinking of something warmer, we also have something that is just right for you. Gat-chogori are rabbit lined fur jackets with a pure silk exterior that are suitable for the colder weather.

– Philippines

Last but not least are the Philippines. The traditional clothing consists of blouses for men and women and pants or a skirt, depending on your gender. You can be sure that we have done our research and will offer you the most authentic and beautifully designed blouses of the Filipino culture. Each piece will be handcrafted to excellence.

There you have it, a brief overview of all the traditional Asian garments we carry. We offer a variety of sizes and are very flexible in terms of design aesthetics, so you are bound to find a piece that you love and want to try. We leave it up to you to browse our extensive selection. Have fun shopping!
