What To Know About Rwandan Traditional Attire ‘Umushanana.’

Before modernity set in, the umushanana attire was designed in two pieces and it was made out of animal skins locally known as ‘impu’ and later when the colonialists came, different materials were introduced though the design didn’t change; the material did go through a transformation.

Nowadays the cultural dress comes in one piece with a varying array of colors selected depending on one’s choice.
