Modern Zulu Women Dressed in Traditional Zulu Clothes

Traditional Zulu attire, Zulu wedding attire, and other African traditional wedding attire are all the same ideas. They are all from the African root, Africa as a continent is endowed with many gorgeous attires. The Isidwaba and Isicwaya from South Africa are not always constructed of skin for the modern Zulu bride like before. Instead, different materials are used to create the Isidwaba and Isicwaya. Instead of a skirt and top, some brides build a Zulu dress and couple it with a traditional headband. Both the bride and groom wear matching beaded bracelets during the ceremony, which are made by the bride. In Zulu Traditional attire, beaded jewelry can be a gesture of love. Thus far, brides have preferred to play around with colors more for the cape, skirt, and hence the hat.

Traditional attire is an important part of a country's or region's cultural identity. It is steeped in history and bears considerable significance for society's members. South African traditional attire has developed throughout time. Leopard skins and cowhides have been substituted by processed leather and dress fabrics, and pleated skirts have replaced the reed skirts of the past.

Traditional African clothing styles have been artistically merged into modern traditional dress designs to make them relevant and culturally significant. It is of great importance to have in your closet any of these African Attires because it symbolizes who you are and where you are from.
