The clothes used in ritual ceremonies show the continuation of an ancient mythological rite. The type and color of the clothes, decorations and objects used in rituals have certainly a symbolic root; though not everyone who is wearing these clothes or using these objects is necessarily aware of their symbolic meanings. This research, in an analytical and descriptive method, is dealing with the relation between clothing and ritual-mythological ceremonies. In every ritual ceremony, we are witnessing special clothes and tools related to that special ritual. Different nations and tribes have different mythological narratives, usually with a common root, regarding the process from primitive life moving towards the modern life. The subjects related to the industry, producing fabric and the method of putting on the clothes are normally ascribed to gods, while in epics they are attributed to the characters and heroes. The color of the ritual clothes is in harmony with the universal symbols and their roots could be found in the mythological beliefs.
