This work is urgent due to the need in studying the Tuvan traditional clothing, which is a part of the “cultural core” of the residents and contributes to the preservation of their national identity. The research aims analyzing the interrelations of the spiritual (sacred) and material (earthly) in the semantics of the Tuvan costume. The subject of the study is the Tuvan folk costume, whereas the main focus is its sign-symbolic nature. The features of the cut, decor and form of the Tuvan costume represent, on the one hand, a unique ethnic specificity, and on the other hand, mean fundamental laws of the Universe inherent in the cultures of all the peoples on the Earth. The study results in the systematization of cultural types of the costume and identification of their symbolic articulation in particular material form (fit, cut or design elements).
