Description

This block printed cloth was made in Venda by the women from Tswanenane Textiles. Tsonga women have been doing bead work and embroidery for many generations. Usually a mother will teach their daughters these skills from a young age. Tsonga women have always made beautiful cloth, clothing and jewellery and wear this traditionally. The typical attire of Tsonga women’s festive garments  are the Nćeka which is the overlay dook or cloth and the Xibilani, the layered skirt for dancing, which reflect the vibrancy and creative use of colour combinations so typical of the Tsonga way of life. They also reflect all sorts of traditional and personal characteristics of individual Tsonga women.
