In the article, the historical development of Uzbek national costumes, sewing techniques, fabric colors, and types of fabrics are described. The clothes are very diverse, colorful, and attractive, the social status of the people, the place where they live, the happy or sad events in their lives are reflected in them. In particular, the historical processes that took place in society in the late XIX and XX centuries, changes in socio-political, cultural, and economic spheres, as well as the rapid development of the textile and clothing industry, the steady growth of people's tastes, and the clash of different cultures led to revolutionary changes in clothing. The study of Uzbek national costumes from a historical ethnographic point of view reflects the ethnic history and culture of the people, their interactions with other peoples. Traditions, social relations, some elements of ideology, religion, elegance, and aesthetic norms are reflected in the clothes.
