Literal meaning Han clothing

Hanfu (simplified Chinese: 汉服; traditional Chinese: 漢服; literally "Han clothing"), also known as Hanzhuang (漢裝) or Huafu (華服), is the traditional dress of the Han Chinese people. The term Hanfu derives from the Book of Han, which says, "then many came to the Court to pay homage and were delighted at the clothing style of the Han [Chinese]."[1]

The hanfu is now worn during some festivals or coming of age/rite of passage ceremonies, by hobbyists or historical re-enactors, by Taoist, Confucian or Buddhist monks and priests during religious ceremonies, or as a cultural exercise. It is often seen in Chinese television serials, films and other forms of media entertainment. There is also a movement in China and some overseas Chinese communities to revive Han Chinese clothing in daily life and incorporate it into Chinese festivals or celebrations.

The concept of hanfu is distinguished from the broader concept of traditional Chinese clothing. This excludes many changes and innovations in the dress of the Han Chinese people since 1644, the founding of the Qing dynasty, on the basis that such changes were imposed by force (such as through the Queue Order) or adopted through cultural influence from the ruling Manchu ethnicity. Thus, the qipao, while widely regarded as an example of traditional Chinese clothing, is not an example of hanfu since it derives from a Manchu clothing style. Today, most Han Chinese wear Western-style clothing in everyday life. Some urban residents in China wear modified or modernized traditional clothing on some occasions, while many in the countryside still use distinctive peasant dress (though not necessarily identical with classical Hanfu). The only significant population segment which wear hanfu regularly on a day-to-day basis are religious priests and monks.

Hanfu has a history of more than three millennia, and is said to have been worn by the legendary Yellow Emperor.

Hanfu was made from silk, supposedly discovered by the Yellow Emperor’s wife, Leizu.

Hanfu of Shang Dynasty

It consisted of a yi(衣), a narrow-cuffed, knee-length tunic tied with a sash, and a narrow, ankle-length skirt, called chang(裳)

Hanfu of Zhou Dynasty
Hanfu became looser, with the introduction of wide sleeves and jade decorations hung from the sash which served to keep the yi closed.
