Ndebele Beaded Purses - These beaded purses are made by South African Ndebele women. The Ndebele's geometric beaded designs are claimed to symbolize their cultural identity while also serving a variety of societal roles. Beadwork and beaded jewelry are two of the oldest and most fundamental ornamental arts practiced by rural people in Southern Africa. Mostly, it depicts the growth of a young girl into a woman.

About the Tribe

Ndebele, also known as Transvaal Ndebele or (ama)Ndebele, are a Bantu-speaking African people who live primarily in the South African provinces of Limpopo, Mpumalanga, and Gauteng. The Ndebele people are divided into three groups: Southern, Northern, and the Ndebele of Zimbabwe. The Ndebele people of South Africa trace their ancestry back to Chief Muzi, who migrated his tribe around 400 years ago from what is now KwaZulu-Natal to Gauteng, both of which are South African provinces. The isiNdebele language is part of the Nguni language.
