Ma Mian Qun

Mamianqun, also known as the horse-faced skirt, is a type of skirt worn by Han Chinese women as the bottom of a garment item in Hanfu. It is named this way because of its resemblance to the mamian fortress, which has stairs on either side (like the pleats) and a door in the front and back (like the skirt doors).

The Mamianqun is composed of two overlapping panels of fabric that wrap around the lower body. Each of these two panels is identical and forms half of the skirt, which is then sewn together with a single waistband creating the overlapping front.

The Mamianqun originated in the Song and Liao dynasties and became popular for its functionality and aesthetics. It continued to be worn in the Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties. And it was the most distinctive style of women’s clothing in the Ming and Qing dynasties.

The Mamianqun is a beautiful and unique type of skirt that has a rich history in Chinese culture. It is still worn today and has been modernized to fit contemporary fashion trends.
