Apache Clothing

Prior to the mid-1800s, traditional Apache women’s clothing consisted of buckskin dresses, and men’s traditional clothing consisted of breechcloths during the summer and a buckskin outfit in the winter, a long shirt with leggings .  The introduction of commercial cloth brought about the two-piece camp dress for women and cloth shirts and leggings for men.  Traditional footwear of the Apache are high boot-like moccasins.  Apache moccasins have a distinctive up-turned toe, which is purely decorative in nature.

Today,traditional Apache clothing is worn during religious ceremonies, other cultural events, and on special occasions.  In everyday life, they wear modern clothing just like everyone else.
