Baju Kedah is believed to have originated from Southen Thailand. Baju Kedah is also said to have existed since the ruling days of Sultan Ahmad Tajuddin in 1803. His grandchild, Wan Hajar Wan Ismail, also known as Mak Wan Besar, was the one who started the trend of Baju Kedah, which was at first restricted for the commoners.
It then became a local favourite. Usually made of cotton with floral motifs or a stiff, thin and see-through fabric, Baju Kedah used to be the choice for daily clothing in the olden days. With a length that fell just below the waist, wide sleeves in a three quarter length, Baju Kedah was commonly paired with a kain batik or kain pelikat.
After hundreds of years, we can still see Baju Kedah glorifying our fashion scene. While there have been some contemporary touches in keeping up to current trends, the classic cutting is maintained to preserve the unique and distinctive look of Baju Kedah.
