Mongolian Nomads

Where nomads live?

The mongolian ger – the nomads tent, nomadic lifestyle over the centuries has principally depended on this classic, collaosible, round tent. The ger’s durability, lightness and low cost are all points of tremendous advantage to the nomad. The ger is a unique model of engineering – an ingenious prefabricated home. The design of this compact tent is ideally suited to nomadic lifestyle. It ombines coolness in summer and warmth in winter. Made mostly of wood and other locally available materials, it can be quickly assembled or taken to pieces, and is easily transported from place to place on camelback or more ofthen than not these days, by truck.

What nomads wear?

The Mongolian National dress (deel) is worn by men and women. It is an elegant three-quarter-length gown that buttonsat the right shoulder to a high round-necked collar. That worn in winter is made of cotton lined with sheepskin and, in summer, of silk with traditional patterns and designs, in shining bright colours- red orange, blue and green. The winter colours are darker –deep purple and dark blue – and are brightened up by a colourful sash of a contrasting colour. The sleeves are so long that they cover the hands so Mongols never need wear gloves. Heads are covered by exotic fur hats and scarves. 
The Mongolian knee-length boots, gutal, have exotic upturned toes and are made of brightly coloured leather, stencilled and incised with patterns. The leather is also stained in different colours and decorated by scoring the surface or stamping with a hot iron. 
Mongolian hats, fur hats or padded hats with ear-flaps are worn in winter and in summer trilby hats are popular with the men while the women wear shawls or scarves.
