There are three main qualities that Kyrgyz clothing must possess: lightness and comfort, so that it is easy to move on a horse; durability, but made from readily available materials; and warmth, as it is worn in a high mountain climate. Kyrgyz clothing is made traditionally of wool, felt, leather, animal hide, and coarse fabric, with decorations based on tribal traditions and drawing from nature.

A man's traditional attire included "kandagay," "chalbar," and "jarq shym",  with a warm coat called "Ichik." This coat was made from the fur of various wild animals, such as foxes, wolves, and lynxes.  Traditional «Chokoy» and «Charyk» shoes, as well as «tebetey», «kalpak», and «malakai» - were common among men.

The favorite attire of women was a skirt called «beldemchi» and jacket «chyptama». Their hats were often covered with bird feathers. Different types of ornaments, pearls, and precious stones were elements of the traditional clothing of the peoples of Kyrgyzstan.
