Hanfu Chinese Dress - Multi-Sized Pattern PDF or Print
PATD43 ~ Hanfu Chinese Dress
Han Chinese clothing, or Hanfu refers to the pre -17th century traditional clothing of the Han Chinese, the predominant ethnic group of China.
The basic of Hanfu was developed in time of Shang Dynasty, from 1600BC to 1000BC.
Clothing from this period was mainly composed of two parts, the Yi (a narrow-cuffed, knee-length tunic tied with a sash) on the top and the Shang (a narrow, ankle-length skirt) underneath.
Hanfu disappeared at the beginning of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
The Qing Dynasty rulers greatly promoted Manchu hair styles and clothes, banning people from wearing Han Chinese clothing. It therefore gradually fell into oblivion.
After the overthrow of the Qing Dynasty ruled by Manchu nobles in the 1911 revolution, people began to wear western-style clothing instead of resuming hanfu tradition.
Along with the development of China’s national power, modern Chinese begin to re-recognize the essence of the nation’s traditional culture, with some people wearing Han Chinese clothing starting a campaign to reintroduce the hanfu tradition.
Due to the length of its history and China’s overwhelming cultural influence on the region, Hanfu has significantly shaped the styles of traditional costumes of many other Asian countries such as Vietnam’s costumes, Korea Hanbok and Japanese Kimono.
