Baijia clothes are also popular in ancient times.

The ancient Chinese generally dressed the “underwear”, and children were no exception, but due to Hu Feng, the clothes of pants were slowly popular in Han Dynasty. The pants of ancient children generally include: trousers, shorts, and open crotch pants. The most distinctive open crotch pants.
As early as the Han Dynasty, a kind of pants were called “dome pants”. After the transformation of the later generation, it was called a “back skirt”. From an angle, two long straps can prevent long skirts from falling off. For children who have not completed their bodies, this dress can prevent the skirt from falling off, and the waist does not have to be a belt. It has no effect on the development of children’s body. This clothes followed Han Zhiming, and it was also very popular among women.

During the Han and Jin dynasties, the murals that were fortunate to have passed on to this day showed that children in this period were wearing pants called “calf nose”, which was a kind of briefs. This kind of pants have been used in the Qing Dynasty, and Jiangnan people love it very much, calling it “bull -headed library”, because this kind of pants are very convenient for Jiangnan people to work in the paddy field. On the one hand, it is convenient to wear in action, and the other party can cover up. But most of the pants wearer are the lower -level labor people.
The history of open crotch pants can be traced back to ancient times. Because the Han nationality has been used to passing the robe and coats since ancient times, the requirements for the clothes in the robe are more casual. In particular, opening crotch pants is also extremely convenient for young children to lack self -care.
Fourth, shoes, other decorations
Today, we can see the images of ancient children’s shoes, most of them are cloth shoes. The ancient Chinese were wearing shoes and no boots. Boots were considered to be the clothes of ethnic minorities in the north. Ming Taizu Zhu Yuanzhang ordered “not allowed boots”. However, in the late Ming Dynasty, the atmosphere of wearing boots was very popular, and many boots of children wear. The boots were generally soft -bottomed, and the upper was embroidered with patterns.
In addition, ancient children also had some special decorations and utensils, such as long -lived locks.

The long -lived lock, starting from the Qing Dynasty, has the custom of wearing a long -lived lock to children. Generally, it is jade or gold or silver, which is used to suppress evil and pray for longevity. This custom first came from the Manchu. The Manchu nationality had a tradition. When the child was born, he would generally ask relatives to ask for lines to weave lock -shaped decorations. It becomes a rumor in a thick line, and then a knot on the online head. There are three silk cloth sewing here, commonly known as “hundred family cables”. When the child is about four or five years old, a cable ceremony is held. “Suo” and “lock” are homophonic, so later, it slowly evolved into a custom of hanging long -term locks, but the wishes of “praying for health and longevity” unchanged.

The clothes of ancient children have different characteristics in different periods. In particular, we can find that under the influence of ethnic minorities, children’s clothing also changes with the concept of adults. In addition, the design of children’s clothes since ancient times has paid attention to practicality and appearance. We can also find that the decorations and decorations of children’s clothes and children’s decorations often pin their parents’ strong expectations and good blessings. To this day, we can still see the impact of many ancient children’s clothes decoration on our concept today.
