Here at Africa Imports we strive to carry a collection of traditional and modern African clothing for our customers. The history of where African fashions
takes its roots and how it has changed over time is a very interesting lesson. The greatest impact on clothing began in the 20th century as a result of trading with
Western countries. Originally, Europeans and Arabs influenced African clothing, especially in the northern regions. The influence of the Arabian culture continues to
be seen in the designs, embroideries, and long robes worn by some Africans in their daily lives.
Most modern Africans wear Western-styled pant suits, shirts, dresses and shoes. Others continue to combine the old with the new, wearing traditional clothing,
along with Western styles. Kaftans, which are also called boubous, are full-length embroidered robes. These kaftans, which today are mainly worn by East African women,
were originally only worn by West African men. Made from cotton or silk, kaftans button down the front. They are also the traditional female clothing of many countries
in West Africa such as Mali, Senegal and Ghana. Africa Imports carries a large selection of kaftans and boubous which can be seen by clicking on the above links.
