Deel is traditional Mongol clothing consisting of a caftan-like long garment, sash, belt, hat and boots. Every ethnic group has created and developed its own unique style, design and decorations, embodying specific features of their culture, origins and historic background. The Deel is practical as it can be adapted to different weather conditions and various lifestyle and social situations of the Mongolian people. However, with modernization there has been a decrease in the number of people wearing the Deel, especially among the youth.
