OT - teacher help!
Or whoever...my daughter is writing a paper and called to ask me a question and my mind went blank. What do you call the clothing people wear that are native to their land? Ethnic clothing? It doesn't sound right to me. I know what I mean, but I've searched and come up with no clear answer. Thanks if you can help.

I just talked to her again and I think that is what she's going with. Thanks for the suggestion.

Probably too late, but how about traditional garb?

I've always called it a traditional costume, or ethnic costume.

Thanks Ladies! These are all pretty much what we came up with so I guess we were all correct.
