Zulu Hats are traditionally only worn by the married Zulu woman. These brightly colored 'Isicholos' are made from a framework of grass and palm leaves covered in fabric with intricate bead and stitch work trim. Zulu hats have moved beyond clothing and are now used as African decor.

At the end of the long, hot, dusty African day, tribesmen sit on Nguni Hides and drink 'Tswala' (African beer) while beating cow hide drums which echoes over the plains and through the valleys of this amazing continent that we call home. The young boys return from the fields with their Nguni cattle.

Just another beautiful day in Africa...

Thank you - Siyabonga.
