The Herero Tribe of Southern Africa, due to the hot climate, wore very little clothing when the first missionaries arrived.
The attire of the European women, in their Victorian costumes, were quickly copied, and Herero women began to wear home sewn dresses with voluminous petticoats and puffy sleeves.
They added a distinctive headdress of fabric curved to resemble the horns of the cattle which are the livelihood of the Herero. This remains the attire of Herero women today.
This Herero lady has been hand sewn and her face sewn by local Herero in Botswana. The doll are 10" tall.
Note the details of earrings and beadwork on the headdress of the lady.
