The Graceful Fulani Woman

The Fulani attire for women, is one of my favourite African attires. The Fulani woman wears a beautiful white gown, adorned with intricate colourful thread embroidery work, with styles differing according to region. The Fulani woman also decorates her hair with beads and cowrie shells, and often decorates her hands, arms and feet with henna, as in other similar cultures of Africa. Her hair is usually braided. It is common for the Fulani woman to have silver coins and amber attached to her braids. Some of these coins are very old and have been passed down in the family. The Fulani woman also enjoys wearing many bracelets on her wrists.
