Tribal print in modern fashion


With each passing year, we have seen an increase in tribal print on modern clothing. A plethora of designers both locally and internationally turn to tribal African prints for inspiration in their creations.


South Africa has embraced this fashion trend by including tribal prints on clothes, shoes, bags, hats, etc. These designs that once were unique to high-fashion, have been made mainstream and affordable for everyone along the income spectrum.


Tribal drawings are taken from paintings on huts, walls, or skin and translated into prints. This aesthetic has been enthusiastically accepted and doesn't seem to be going out of style any time soon.
