Most of the parts of costumes worn by women from Toraja, including the blouse and sarong, are made of bark. The short-sleeved blouse is brightly painted with symbols, the sarong is black or brown. But, the headdress is made of bamboo, and is covered with painted or embroidered bark-cloth. Another kind of headdress is composed of several strings of beads joined together into a band. They also wear a long band of colored cloth to tie over the hips.
The jewelry consists of necklaces of ancient polish stones, seeds, or feathers; and metal bracelets and earrings.
