What is umblaselo?

Umblaselo is a traditional Zulu outfit which is usually worn for special traditional occasions and celebrations.

The Umblaselo designs originated from garments which were made from old clothing that was patched over to further increase the life of a garment by patching it up and adorning it with fancy trims.

Fashion designers in South Africa have creatively designed Umblaselo outfits to embrace this African Heritage and the Umblaselo has now developed into the colourful traditional South African outfit highly priced.

Every Umblaselo set is handmade and comes in different colours. See our Umblaselo Designs for men.
