Last month Siboniso Langa, one of our enthusiastic Ulwazi fieldworkers, reported on the different clothes that Zulu men and women wear at different times of their lives, and in different contexts. Siboniso discussed everything from bridal outfits to the clothes that a Zulu prince wears, as well as everyday attire for traditional Zulu girls and boys.
