Traditional Balinese clothes are colorful, extravagant and aesthetically pleasing. They are used for religious ceremonies, wedding ceremonies and for daily use.
The clothing is different for males and females. Years ago, the Balinese did not wear any clothing for their upper body. These days, women wear kebaya and men wear collared shirts. This is what the traditional clothing is today:
• Male : shirt, kamen, saput, selendang & udeng
• Female : kebaya, kamen & selendang
The look of Balinese attire has evolved but it’s value as a symbol of honour to Ida Sang Hyang Widhi, has been preserved. These traditional clothes are easy to wear and there are many shops in which to buy traditional Balinese attire; from traditional markets to modern concept stores.
