Red Zulu Hat | South Africa

 

This hat has a rich traditional history among the Zulu people.  It was originally given to a new bride by her mother in law as a mark of her change in status.    The hats were originally made out of human hair colored with ochre soil but are now made of cotton over a basket frame.  They are now worn by married women at ceremonial occasions.
