The national costume of the Turkmen people, going along a long path of development, is linked closely to the history, traditions and aesthetic views of the era. The design of a modern costume cannot evolve in isolation from national traditions. The national costume is not only a bright element of age-old culture, but also the integrity of traditional cut, ornament and decor.

Today is the heyday of the Turkmen national culture, a time when special attention is paid to national decorative art. An important element in clothing design is the properties of fabrics, embroidery, finishing and their decorative capabilities. All the typical features of ancient Turkmen clothing are transferred to modern design: the traditional dress and robe are adopted as the basis.
