Ndebele beaded purses are a type of traditional handcrafted accessory created by the Ndebele people, an ethnic group from South Africa known for their distinctive beadwork and artistic traditions. The Ndebele people are renowned for their colorful and geometric beadwork designs, which are rich in symbolism and cultural significance. Ndebele beaded purses are typically small, handheld bags made using a combination of beadwork and sewing techniques. The base of the purse is often constructed from fabric or leather, and then vibrant beads are meticulously hand-sewn onto the surface in intricate patterns and motifs. The beadwork patterns commonly feature geometric shapes, triangles, zigzags, and bold, contrasting colors.

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.
