Apache Indian woman wearing a full blouse, skirt and leggings.

Prior to the arrival of Europens, the Apache clothes were mostly made out of animal hide or skin. They wore clothes made out of leather (Buffalo hide) or buckskin (skin of a type of deer). ... The Apache women wore long matching skirts and blouses made of buckskin.

After Apaches came into contact with the Mexicans and whites, and had access to cloth through trade, they opted to use light, comfortable cottons in replacement of their heavy leathers. (Source: The Warrior Apaches, Gordon C. Baldwin, King, 1965)
