Every people has an identity. Identity is the union of several aspects, including the way of dressing and embellishing the body. In Africa, fabrics, ornaments and body paintings reflect the cultural variety of its population and form the basis around which sub-groups identify.
For the sake of clarity, we will define traditional African clothes as the costumes worn by the natives of the continent. African clothing styles have clandestinely been influencing contemporary fashion for a long time, a detail that undoubtedly calls this to attention is the use of clothes or Cangas that wrap around the bodies of women. These Cangas are African clothes whose fabrics, patterns and finishes have won the world.
