Last month we explored just how the BaSotho culture is showing up in our bedrooms. This month we explore the Zulu Influence and see how things have evolved and stayed the same over the last 200 years.

The Zulu people are the largest ethnic group in South Africa, making up nearly a quarter of our population. It's no wonder then that Zulu culture and language permeate our society. Hey, even our president is a Zulu! From architecture and design to international fashion... there is an unmistakable Zulu fingerprint.

Leopard print, heavy beading and colourful patterns are often found gracing the catwalks. Zululand is full of neutral grass tones, contrasting primary colours and playful textures.It's not surprising that fashion designers draw on these elements to make eye catching collections.
