Most African conventional attires are known for their bold and bright colours with unique beadwork and matching headwear. In modern society, designers mix traditional fabric with contemporary styles to create unique fashion.
What are Tsonga traditional clothes?
The attire is made from three major prints, including the Xitsonga xibelani, Miceka, and Motjeka. The entire outfit is made up of the doek, a neckpiece called vuhlalu, a stomach belt known as nkhamu, a shirt called yele, and ti queeni.
Tsonga traditional attire for men consists of a brightly coloured robe or animal skin, a headdress with ostrich feathers and a sash around the waist. Women wear wraparound woven skirts with beaded accessories. Modern designs often come in bright shades of green, pink, blue, purple, and yellow.
