Laos Defines National Dress

To further promote Lao culture, the government has organized a seminar which defined the country's national dress to be used during formal events.

For men the suit will be made from Lao silk fabric and cut in a Lao style. The women’s suit is also from Lao silk fabric cut as a traditional Lao shirt and worn together with a silk skirt.
