Turkmen traditional clothing

The four basic colors of traditional Turkmen dresses are red, black, yellow, and white. Borders of scarves, as well as collars, hems and sleeves of coats are decorated with highly characteristic embroidery. Red dresses are most favored by women, while the base color of their upper clothes changes to black, then yellow, then white, as the weaver become older.
