However, during the study, it was found that studies related to clothing and accessories were not fully investigated in the aforementioned book. Until today, didactic epic Kutadgu Bilig has been widely studied and many articles have been written. However, the study of the clothing and accessories of Kutadgu Bilig especially in the direct phraseological sense, was not specifically researched and was not written in the form of an article. Although it was written from time to time under other topics. We wanted to fill this gap.
