A Lo Lo ethnic women’s outfit includes a scarf, shirt, pants, an apron, a belt, a skirt, and shoes. The scarves of Lo Lo ethnic women in Ha Giang are often black or indigo and are embellished with many decorations.
When dressed in their traditional costumes, Lo Lo ethnic women also wear silver jewellery, which adds even more charm to the outfit.
Tourists to Lung Cu Flag Tower in Dong Van District should not miss the visit to Lo Lo Chai Village, where they can explore the culture of the Lo Lo ethnic group.
According to their particular costumes and culture, the Lo Lo can be divided into two sub-groups: ‘Lo Lo Den’ and ‘Lo Lo Hoa’, with the costumes of the Lo Lo Hoa people being more colourful than those of the Lo Lo Hoa.
The costumes of Lo Lo Den ethnic women are made in black with colourful decorations on the cuffs and the buttoned placket.
