Herero people who live in several countries of South Africa (Namibia, Botswana etc.) have a very unusual traditional dress. It is called Herero dress and it looks like a European dress from Victorian Era. I wonder if it’s not too hot to wear such garment in Africa…
And the headgear used with this dress is, even more, striking). It is a horn-shaped headdress made from rolled cloth very similar to cow horns. Herero people are cattle farmers (it's their main occupation), that's why they chose such a strange headgear.
Here you can post the information about different pieces of national dresses. It doesn't matter clothing of what country you bear in mind. Please add photos of mentioned garments to make it more interesting and clear for other people.
