Senegal Fulani Village

The traditional dress of the Fulani consists of long colourful flowing robes, modestly embroidered and decorated. Also characteristic Fulani tradition is that of women using henna around the mouth, resulting in a blackening around the lips. Fula ethics are strictly governed by the notion of pulaaku. Men wear long robes to the lower calves with trousers of cotton. Herdsmen wear the distinctive conical straw hat and a turban. Women wear long robes and turbans. They decorate themselves with necklaces, earrings, nose rings and anklets.
