What does Papuan wear?

Men on the island of New Guinea have only one robe, it is called bole. Make it from the bark of a tree. This bob is a handkerchief 15 cm wide and 3 meters long. Most often it is red. Make a pimple in this way: the upper layer is removed from the bark, which is beaten on a smooth stone until it is flexible and soft. After that, the dyes are stained with red ocher, but this paint is kept for a short time, and soon the hay becomes brown. To put it on, Papuan holds her navel at one end, and passes it between her legs, then wraps it around her waist several times, securing the other end to the back.

Papuans clothes

Women on these islands are dressed in aprons, which are also called hale, consisting of a half-meter fringe, fastened at the waist. Such a fringe closes the body well and does not obstruct movement. Typically, women's clothing Papuas decorated with red and black horizontal stripes. Unmarried girls wear short mali with a rarer fringe, unlike married women. On some islands, girls, before marriage itself, wear haly in the form of a belt, with bast brushes attached to the front and back.

Besides moles, what does a Papuan wear? Papuans also use wide and long pieces of matter, making them like Mali. Morning and night, they help them warm up.

The clothes of the Papuans are not only Mali, but also Huns and iambus, they are inseparable from them. Iamb - a small bag hanging on the neck, in a gun - a bigger bag worn on the left shoulder. In Iamba, the Papuans wear small things and tobacco, and in the Hun they wear a box of lime for chewing betel, shillup, yarur, kai, small bamboo jars with black and red paint, shells and other things he needs. These bags are woven from multi-colored thin laces and decorated with small shells.


On the top of the arm, the Papuans wear bracelets - the saga. Weave them from grass or bark, just decorating with shells. Over the calves of the legs, the Papuans wear rings of samba-saga. The necklace with the fangs of wild pigs, worn on the chest, is considered a special adornment for this people. Such necklaces are called boules.

Papuans wear wide wooden or tortoise earrings in their ears. In the absence of such, bamboo sticks, flowers or oblong stones are inserted into the ears. Women have two kinds of earrings.A string or one ring is inserted into the earlobe, and a cord is made through the hole in the upper edge of the ear, which passes through the same hole in the other ear. At the ends of these laces, several pairs of white canine teeth are attached, which hang on both sides of the neck, and the cord at this time lies on the head. In addition, women use nangeli-gun - these are two bags that are much larger than those of men. Carry them like this: throw the bag on your back, and twist the cord around the forehead. In one such bag every day a woman brings fruits from the plantation, and in another bag, which is smaller, women carry small children, and sometimes puppies or piglets.

So unusual to read what the Papuans go. We are already accustomed to walking in jeans and T-shirts, wearing everything you need in bags and backpacks, and they live there like primitive.
