SWA Stamp Headdresses – Cushion Covers


Hair in ancient African cultures symbolised one’s family background, social and marital status, spirituality and tribe. Hair continues to give meaning and hold symbolic significance as well as be a fashion statement. Hair is also a social activity as women gather to do each other’s hair and chat. Beads, feathers, bone, cloth, seeds and all manner of adornments were used to embellish the hair and today wigs, cloths and beads are the main adornments.
