Armenian traditional garments represented across China
Armenian traditional garments or national costume (Taraz) has always played a significant
role in the perception and expression of the Armenian identity. Armenian students have
taken active participation in the international festivals and various cultural activities within
and beyond university programs, while living, learning, and working in China, attending
performances and contests wearing their traditional outfits.
The Chinese audience was very enthusiastic to encounter Armenian culture and countless
times expressed curiosity regarding particularly national costume details, silverware
accessories, embroidered pieces, handicrafts- the exquisite works of the Armenian
draughtsmen, artists, and artisans worldwide.
